  • Safe and Nutritious Food Systems: increasing the availability of nutritious food and making food more affordable and accessible.
  • Inclusive Food Systems: promoting equitable livelihoods by empowering smallholder farmers and bringing food and income-generating activities to communities at the last mile.
