What We Do
Launched by the G20 in response to the 2007–2008 food price crisis, the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) is a multilateral financing instrument dedicated to fighting hunger, malnutrition, and poverty in the world's poorest countries. We work to support smallholder farmers and their families by strengthening sustainable and resilient food and agriculture systems. Since 2010, we have provided $1.7 billion in financial and technical resources to projects along the entire agriculture value chain. These funds are delivered through partnerships with multilateral development agencies and private sector actors with presence and expertise on the ground.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.
80% of the world’s food is grown on small or family farms. We support resilient and sustainable agriculture systems that benefit and empower vulnerable smallholder farmers and their families.
