Our Mission

GAFSP aims to improve food and nutrition security and build the sustainability of agriculture and food systems, providing financial and technical resources to projects along the food chain, from ‘farm to table’. Since 2010, GAFSP has pooled $2 billion in donor funds and supported over 190 public and private sector projects worldwide.  

Governments, the private sector, and producer organizations choose and tailor interventions best suited to their own contexts. They design, lead, and implement these projects in partnership with the world’s leading development agencies, who have knowledge and presence on the ground. These investments – more than half of which are in fragile contexts – have a strong focus on progressing climate action and improving farmers’ livelihoods, food security and nutrition.

Community Response

GAFSP provides grants directly to producer organizations, recognizing that smallholders are the best placed to recognize the impacts on the ground and are the most responsive in times of crisis.
