The Biden administration has unveiled a plan to address food-security challenges.
Samantha Power, Administrator of the US Agency for International Development, says the Global Food Security Research Strategy will use data to help strengthen the impact of U.S. food security assistance.
“It will focus investments and research on three key areas,” Power said. “Genetic improvements of crops and livestock, climate-smart agriculture, and improved nutrition.”
She says it will help build medium to long-term sustainable food systems by investing in practices that combat climate change.
