Spain Renews its Financial Support for GAFSP

The Government of Spain recently pledged EUR 10 million for the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP), thereby renewing its commitment of support towards the program.

In a statement during Global Citizen’s Global Goal: Unite for our Future event on June 27, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said, “Joining forces is the only way to end this [COVID-19] pandemic, leaving no one behind. It’s time for a multilateral response. It’s time to take action… [Spain] has shown its financial commitment, and today, once again, I want to make an open call for everybody to join the Global Goal: Unite for Our Future campaign.” 

Spain has previously contributed EUR 70 million (equiv. US$94.2 million) to GAFSP to support public sector investments, and the new commitment signals crucial support from the international donor community for the food and nutrition security agenda.
