World Food Day: Partnering with USAID to advance global food security
KS-APS marks this important day to raise awareness on the issue of hunger and the waste of food. We are so lucky to work alongside partners in the international development community to address food insecurity and malnutrition. “Worldwide, more than 80% of the extreme poor live in rural areas and many rely on agriculture and natural resources for their living” – FAO (2022, October 16) Leave NO ONE behind.
Over the past two two years, KS-APS has worked alongside partners at i-APS to support clients in identifying practical, relevant and innovative solutions for more efficient and sustainable agricultural production to enhance local food security, incomes, and nutrition. This year, we are flattered to be featured among USAID’s Five Global Food Security Partners Advancing the Agriculture Sector. See full article here: https://www.workwithusaid.org/blog/five-global-food-security-partners-advancing-the-agriculture-sector. As we further expand our team, we continue to support i-APS’ Data Analysis and Communication efforts to research, assess, and recommend best practices to support agriculture development in crisis-affected areas as well as produce training material for farmers, suppliers, food processors and distributors worldwide.
On this important day, we would like to express our gratitude and willingness to continue this work with partners to prioritize the right of all people to food, nutrition, peace and equality.
