Food security is today a pillar of The United States’ development strategy and because of the size of the challenge, there is a growing recognition that it will require both aid and private capital to address.

As OPIC works to invest in projects that advance food security, it also recognizes that increasing food production is only part of the challenge. Many of OPIC’s projects support food storage and transportation and access to clean potable water, to help ensure that the world makes the most of its limited food resources; as well as preservation of the world’s forests and natural resources, which will help promote food production over time.
