Since its founding in 2003, the Platform has effectively shared knowledge and successfully advocated for the role of agriculture, food systems, and rural development in promoting sustainable rural communities, which are key to achieving global food and nutrition security. For over one and a half decades, the Platform’s work has demonstrated that informed policy and programming are essential factors for better development results and effectiveness of investments.
“Members work together to influence ideas and resources for sustainable agriculture and food systems transformation“– this goal will continue to guide the Platform in the future” David Hegwood of the U.S. Agency for International Development, one of the Platform Board’s Co-Chairs,
During the transfer of the Secretariat’s services, GIZ as the former host and IFAD as new host closely coordinated to ensure that all services regarding the Platform’s operations and the support to the Platform’s individual Thematic Working Groups will continue.
