What We Do
The Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) is a demand-led and recipient-owned global partnership dedicated to fighting hunger, malnutrition, and poverty by supporting resilient and sustainable agriculture in low-income countries that benefits and empowers poor and vulnerable smallholder farmers, particularly women. We cost-effectively pool donor funds and selectively allocate them to where they are most needed, effective, and catalytic through a mix of public and private investment tools that expand the horizon of agricultural financing.Learn More
Through long-term investments in agriculture, food and nutrition security, our projects create employment opportunities, generate incomes, and reduce rural poverty.
Globally, more than 820 million people go to bed hungry every day. We amplify the impact of development assistance with the goal of fighting hunger.
Smallholder farmers produce 80% of the world's food. We support resilient and sustainable agriculture systems that benefit and empower vulnerable smallholder farmers and their families.
