  18. 18. GHI’S FIVE POLICY PRIORITIES
  19. 19. INVEST IN PUBLIC AG R&D AND EXTENSION EVERY PUBLIC DOLLAR invested in agricultural research in the U.S. provides at least $10 in economic benefits to society. On average, the Latin America and Caribbean region has met the UN recommendation to ALLOCATE 1% OF AG GDP to research and development.

  23. 23. COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH TO IMPROVE DRYLANDS AGRICULTURE • Sorghum & millet thrive in drylands, are resistant to drought and can be used for human and animal consumption • Public-private partnerships are improving the nutritional quality of sorghum and millet and strengthening the seed systems for these crops
  24. 24. EMBRACE, CUSTOMIZE & DISSEMINATE SCIENCE-BASED & INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES GMO crop technology on average reduced pesticide use 37%, increased yields 22% and increased farmer profit 68%
  25. 25. SMART, SCIENCE-BASED REGULATORY SYSTEMS  Promote innovation, entrepreneurship and competitiveness  Protect natural resources and the environment  Ensure consumer health and safety, and build trust
  26. 26. SMART, SCIENCE-BASED REGULATORY SYSTEMS Shared Responsibilities Farmers Input Suppliers, Processors and Retailers Government Media Consumers

  28. 28. BIOFORTIFICATION FOR BETTER NUTRITION • Micronutrient malnutrition impacts 2 billion people every year, resulting in stunted growth, low resistance to disease, chronic illness and reduced cognitive development • Biofortification of crops such as sorghum and millet, allow people to grow fortified foods for themselves AFRICAN BIOFORTIFIED SORGHUM PROJECT
  29. 29. ENHANCE PRIVATE SECTOR INVOLVEMENT IN AGRICULTURE AND INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT In low- and middle-income countries, 78% OF AG INVESTMENTS are capital investments MADE BY FARMERS THEMSELVES. There is a $1 TRILLION INVESTMENT GAP FOR INFRASTRUCTURE in low- and middle-income countries.

  33. 33. Cultivate Partnerships for Sustainable Agricultural Growth and Improved Nutrition U.S. government has leveraged $100 BILLION IN PRIVATE SECTOR INVESTMENTS to address poverty, agricultural development and food security. Agricultural yields would INCREASE BY 30% IF WOMEN HAD EQUAL ACCESS to productive inputs.
  34. 34. The 4Ps: Public-Private-Producer Partnerships Why include producers?  To gain knowledge of local agroecological conditions and address community concerns and goals  To build local ownership by making producers full partners in the project design, management, monitoring and evaluation  To improve project sustainability through leadership capacity building Credit: SoilCares Foundation
  35. 35. Women Farmer Cooperatives WOMEN ARE THE KEY Partners in Improving Nutrition Credit: ICARDA Off the Farm and Out of the Kitchen Credit: Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Processing and Post-Harvest Handling
  36. 36. EXPAND REGIONAL AND GLOBAL TRADE AND HARMONIZE STANDARDS Reducing the COST OF GLOBAL TRADE BY 1 PERCENT increases GLOBAL INCOME BY $40 BILLION In Southern and Eastern Africa ONLY 1-IN-4 SMALL-SCALE FARMERS have access to QUALITY IMPROVED SEEDS
