Scaling up for food security in Africa.

Africa Lead is Feed the Future’s primary capacity building program in sub Saharan Africa. Feed the Future (FTF) is the U.S. Government’s global hunger and food security initiative.

The Africa Lead program works to help realize FTF’s and the African Union’s Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP) goals of reduced hunger and poverty by building the capacity of champions, institutions and stakeholders to develop, lead and manage the structures needed for African-led agriculture transformation and food security.
