Feed the Future Global Forum Highlights Past, Present and Future

May 12, 2014
Megan Johnson, USAID

Join us this May for the first-ever Feed the Future Global Forum to highlight where we’ve been, what we’ve achieved (and learned along the way), and how we’re accelerating progress.

In 2009, President Obama mobilized the world to renew its commitment to fighting hunger through agricultural development. Since then, Feed the Future has stood with farmers around the world, helping them access the tools, knowledge and resources they need to grow their way out of poverty, hunger and poor nutrition.

On May 19-21, global leaders from the public and private sectors who are driving Feed the Future’s implementation will gather in the Washington, DC, metro area to:

  • Highlight results that can be scaled for even greater impact
  • Identify opportunities for stronger collaboration among partners
  • Accelerate progress toward our goals of reducing global poverty, hunger and undernutrition
