Thanks to all of you who attended our 2nd London policy night last week. During the discussion, One Acre Fund shared how their work contributes to agricultural development and food security and what lessons and opportunities they offer the new UK Government to expand support in light of the passage of the 0.7% Aid Bill and DFID’s forthcoming agriculture refresh strategy. Stephanie Hanson, Senior Vice President, Policy & Partnerships at the One Acre Fund joined Gordon Conway in leading the discussion.
The audience raised important questions about “Who” is responsible for leading interventions for food security? What happens when private companies or other NGO’s offer similar services in the same areas? Does this leave certain populations ‘out of the loop’? Whether or not these road bumps are overcome, is this all worth the effort?
