Bureau for Food Security

USAID has a long history of technical leadership in international agricultural development, drawing upon the expertise of U.S. universities, industry, non-governmental and private voluntary organizations, multilateral development partners and its own technical staff. The Bureau for Food Security leads coordination of the U.S. Government Global Food Security Strategy through the U.S. Government's Feed the Future initiative to combat hunger, poverty and malnutrition. This initiative leverages the strengths of other U.S. government partners, multilateral institutions, NGOs, the private sector, universities and civil society organizations to support country-driven strategies for boosting food security, resilience and nutrition, and invests in strengthening both public and private institutions that underpin growth in the agricultural sector.

The Bureau also houses USAID's Center for Resilience, which provides strategic, programmatic and analytic leadership on USAID’s resilience priorities and provides related technical assistance and implementation resources to the Agency.
