Feed The Future Working To Improve Drought Resiliency

Food insecurity in the Horn of Africa “is driven by cyclical drought, poor land management practices, limited availability of animal health services, food inflation, conflict over land and water, poor hygiene practices, and lack of dietary diversity,” Paul Weisenfeld, assistant to the administrator, Bureau of Food Security at USAID, writes in the agency’s “IMPACTblog.” He continues, “This is why my colleagues and I are so passionate about supporting Feed the Future, the U.S. government initiative to address the root causes of hunger and poverty,” concluding that “USAID and its partners are striving … to ensure that Feed the Future has the greatest possible impact and increases resilience among vulnerable populations” (8/2).
