Responding to spikes in food prices and increasing concern about levels of food insecurity around the world the 2009 L’Aquila Summit marked a turning point for international efforts to achieve food security worldwide with the G8 committing to mobilize $22 billion for agriculture and food security.

As part of the U.S. Government contribution to this global effort President Obama launched the Feed the Future (FTF) Initiative in 2010, declaring the commitment of the United States to sustainably reduce hunger and poverty through increased agricultural development and nutrition programs. MCC has and will continue to actively support the development and implementation of FTF at various stages in the process, leveraging nearly seven years of implementation of agriculture and food-security related investments and sharing experiences and lessons learned on measuring results and accountability.
