The Feed the Future initiative, the U.S. Government’s global hunger and food security initiative led by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), is addressing the root causes of poverty, hunger and malnutrition and transforming lives.
Agricultural research plays an integral role in this strategy. Agricultural research has been shown to yield $10-20 in economic benefits for every $1 invested, which in turn translates into improved nutrition and health, better wages and employment opportunities, and reductions in poverty.
To make lasting impacts on global food security, Feed the Future partners with scientists around the world through U.S. university-led Feed the Future Innovation Labs. Find opportunities to work with existing Innovation Labs on the Feed the Future LinkedIn page. Notices about funding opportunities to lead new Innovation Labs are posted at grants.gov.
