Transforming agrifood systems to deliver on hunger, poverty, nutrition, and climate change is necessary, urgent, and achievable.

Here's how.

We engage with donors and agencies on major initiatives in food security, nutrition, agriculture, gender equality, and climate change, and we secure commitments from governments, the private sector and civil society to implement recommendations in policies, programmes and projects through the Zero Hunger Coalition.

We research and prepare a variety of reports, including landscape reports; deep dives with evidence-based, costed roadmaps for countries and regions; cost modelling and global recommendations on effective interventions & costs to end hunger sustainably, nutritiously, and equitably


We are launching an online platform for donors to track, monitor & analyse ODA for agriculture and food security. We are also developing AI processes to support evidence & assessment projects and creating new frameworks that can be used to support agricultural and nutrition research. We are ensuring strong,  standardized evidence collection and synthesis by publishing normative guidance and training materials

We are forming strategic partnerships and alliances with research organizations, civil society, the private sector & across agencies, and work with the Innovation Commission on Climate Change, Food Security, and Agriculture on to help identify and implement mechanisms that encourage innovation development.

The need for evidence-based action and innovation

The quality and quantity of Official Development Assistance  (ODA) to agriculture is not adequate to meet strategic and global targets on small scale producer productivity, income and sustainability  nor broader objectives to transform food systems. Poverty and hunger are on the rise, and reversing this must be done in a way that builds food systems that are simultaneously able to provide sufficient food for all, improve incomes, equity and productivity for small-scale producers, make diets healthier and more affordable, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and build capacities needed to adapt to climate change and conflict.
