USAID Collaborates with Syngenta to Improve Global Food Security
Thursday, 2013/05/16 | 08:34:58

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Syngenta International AG to improve agriculture and food security activities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Through the MOU, USAID, and Syngenta will collaborate in research and development and smallholder capacity building and work with scientists, entrepreneurs, policy makers and other donors. The MOU will also help build the capacity of smallholder farmers to adopt and safely use technologies that increase their yields through training, demonstrations, and other approaches.

 

Dr. Rajiv Shah, USAID Administrator, said that "Scaling the adoption of innovative technologies like drought-tolerant seeds and crop insurance can build the foundation for sustainable food security. By strengthening our partnership with Syngenta, we can reduce hunger and undernutrition across three different continents and help bring the end of extreme poverty within reach."

 

This USAID-Syngenta commitment advances agricultural development and food security goals of developing country governments supported by USAID through Feed the Future, the U.S. Government's global hunger and food security initiative, which is part of the U.S. contribution to the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition.
