Maximizing Efforts through Private Sector Partnerships

September 16, 2016

It’s Feed the Future Week, and all week we’ll be celebrating progress and partnerships made possible through the initiative’s innovative model for development. Feed the Future’s progress wouldn't be possible without our partners—governments, private companies, universities and research partners, other donors and civil society. Read on as we celebrate the vital partnerships that have contributed to impact across the globe.

Maximizing Efforts through Private Sector Partnerships 

Through Feed the Future, the U.S. and other donors have pledged to do business differently so we can help nations meet their agricultural potential and end global hunger and poverty in our lifetimes. How will we get there? In part, by working with the private sector to drive agriculture-led economic growth, and by viewing food producers as budding entrepreneurs themselves.

At the center of this model is our commitment to engage the private sector in meaningful, catalytic ways. That’s why Feed the Future has formed alliances with many U.S. and multinational companies, as well as local and regional companies to expand our reach into some of the world’s most remote, but productive regions. These dynamic partnerships are leveraging millions of dollars in private capital for inclusive agricultural development and nutrition efforts and promoting growth in new markets. 

More than ever, governments and other donors agree that none of us can go it alone. Ending hunger, poverty and malnutrition will require new innovations and market-based solutions to some of the world’s toughest challenges. Together with our private sector partners, we can rise to the task and create a food-secure 2030.
