There is broad consensus that reducing global poverty and hunger requires accelerating growth in the agriculture sector. Studies suggest that every 1 percent increase in agricultural income per capita reduces the number of people living in extreme poverty by between 0.6 and 1.8 percent. Feed the Future strives to increase agricultural production and the incomes of both men and women in rural areas who rely on agriculture for their livelihoods. Investments in inclusive agriculture-led growth encompass improving agricultural productivity, expanding markets and trade, and increasing the economic resilience of vulnerable rural communities. Feed the Future seeks to unleash the proven potential of small-scale agricultural producers to deliver results on a large scale.
