Feed the Future engages the private sector in a meaningful, comprehensive way to meet the global food security challenge. The resulting strategic alliances with the private sector speak to core business interests while also addressing critical development objectives. These "win-win" partnerships advance the impact of sustainable development and foster private sector-led growth in emerging markets, a critical step in reducing poverty, fighting hunger, and improving nutrition. Feed the Future invests in creating enabling policy environments and physical infrastructure that facilitate private sector investment by individual agricultural producers, small and medium enterprises, and larger businesses. Feed the Future also serves as the principal vehicle through which the United States contributes to the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, a global partnership between African governments, donors and the private sector to increase investment in agriculture and reduce poverty in Africa. By coordinating with the private sector and sharing risks in pursuit of food security, Feed the Future increases its collective impact.
