Strengthening Farmers’ Resilience

The Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) is a $2 billion multilateral financing platform dedicated to improving food and nutrition security in the world’s poorest countries.

Our Mission

Launched by the G20 in the wake of the global response to the 2007–08 food price crisis, GAFSP works to build resilient and sustainable agriculture and food systems in low-income countries, in times of crisis and beyond. We provide countries, agribusinesses, and smallholder farmers with financial and technical resources to design and implement projects across the food value chain, from 'farm to table'.  

As the world faces multiple and overlapping stresses and shocks – pushing millions of people, including smallholder farmers, deeper into hunger and food insecurity – GAFSP’s mandate is now more relevant than ever.

Agriculture contributes to climate change – but can heal the planet

The facts are clear: climate change affects food and food security. While smallholders often bear the brunt of the impacts of climate change, they are best placed to identify and implement resilient and sustainable solutions.
