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. The New Alliance is a shared commitment to achieve sustained and inclusive agricultural growth and raise 50 million people out of poverty over the next 10 years.
The New Alliance includes the commitments of:
- Africa’s leadership to drive effective country plans and policies for food security
- Private sector partners to increase investments where the conditions are right
- Donors to expand Africa’s potential for rapid and sustainable agricultural growth
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 follows the new model for development that 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.
