Private Sector Partners Convene to Address Global Hunger and Food Security

By Hillary Chen

Last week, representatives from the private sector joined U.S. Government colleagues—from the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, and State; USAID; and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation—to discuss potential areas of partnership in support of Feed the Future, the Administration’s global hunger and food security initiative. 

The Feed the Future Public-Private Partnership Technical Forum was one of many Feed the Future outreach efforts, which have included ongoing consultations with host nations; monthly consultations with civil society; and continuing engagement with the academic community, which was particularly important in the creation of the Feed the Future Research Strategy. The forum is part of an all-hands-on deck approach to doubling agricultural productivity to meet projected demand for food in 2050, which is a daunting goal—particularly in light of global challenges such as water availability, climate change, and energy.
