The New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition

Launched in 2012, the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition ushered in a new phase of global investment in food security and nutrition, building on previous G8 efforts. This joint partnership aims to accelerate responsible investment in African agriculture and lift 50 million people out of poverty by 2022.

The New Alliance includes specific commitments from:

  • African leaders to refine policies in order to improve investment opportunities and drive their country-led plans on food security
  • Private sector companies, who have collectively committed morethan $3 billion to increase investments
  • Donor partners, who will support Africa’s potential for rapid and sustained agricultural growth, and ensure accountability for the New Alliance

Feed the Future serves as the principal vehicle through which the United States contributes to the New Alliance. In line with the foundational principles of Feed the Future, the New Alliance supports country-driven approaches to development with input and collaboration from local organizations and leaders to ensure lasting results for smallholder farmers and their families.

New Alliance Leadership Council

To support expanded partnerships and interest of additional African countries, companies and donor partners beyond the G8 expressing interest in joining the New Alliance as it enters its third year in 2014, the New Alliance’s Leadership Council is co-convened by the African Union, the World Economic Forum, and the United States.
