World Food Prize Side Event: New Donor Tools to Build Food Security

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am

The Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) is a U.S. foreign assistance agency that has invested more than $5 billion in partner countries to address the many sources of food insecurity. Since its founding in 2004, MCC focuses on addressing major constraints to economic growth and food security through large binational grant agreements called “compacts”.

Building on the UN Food Systems Summit (FSS), this event features tools developed by the MCC and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) to advance global agricultural and food systems transformation. These tools are meant to support design and implementation of programs to advance food security, social inclusion, and climate-smart agricultural systems.

In this webinar, MCC will present a preview of our upcoming Agricultural Development Toolkit along with a series of MCC-supported papers from IFPRI that are already informing MCC’s work with our partner countries.

There will be ample time for Q&A.
