Food Security Working Group: Overview
InterAction seeks to increase and sustain donor investments in food security and agriculture and to improve the quality of donor and NGO programming. Through information sharing, peer learning and documenting of best practices, InterAction supports member organizations in strengthening their field programs and in shaping the policies of the U.S. government and multilateral institutions.
By maintaining an ongoing dialogue with the U.S. government, InterAction and its members promote broad and inclusive country ownership of national agricultural plans. They focus on underserved groups, such as women and minority populations, and advocate for a strong, central role for civil society. Environmental sustainability has also become a key element in approaches to food security and agricultural development. These policies are core pillars of the U.S. government’s Feed the Future Initiative, and are vital for its success in forging long-term solutions to chronic food insecurity and malnutrition.
