New Alliance For Food Security And Nutrition Recognizes One-Year Anniversary

Noting the one-year anniversary of the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, Tjada McKenna, deputy coordinator for development at Feed the Future, and Jonathan Shrier, acting special representative for global food security and deputy coordinator for diplomacy at Feed the Future, write in the Feed the Future blog, “In the first year of implementation after its launch, the New Alliance has looked to Feed the Future’s innovative, comprehensive approach as a model for fostering transparency and accountability, increasing private investment, expanding access to new technologies, and fostering a supporting policy environment. We are confident that with the collective commitments of our partners, we will carry the momentum forward on these goals.” They outline specific efforts and conclude, “Through Feed the Future, and together with our partners from African and donor governments, the private sector, civil society, and the research community, the U.S. government will continue to be a strong advocate for the New Alliance as we strive to meet President Obama’s challenge to end extreme poverty in the next two decades” (5/30).
