Accountability and Learning for the U.S. Government’s Hunger and Food Security Initiative
The U.S. Government’s Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative, Feed the Future, has the overarching goal of sustainably reducing global hunger, malnutrition, and poverty. The U.S. works with partner governments, the private sector, civil society, and academic institutions to spur inclusive and sustainable agricultural-led economic growth, strengthen resilience among people and systems, and reduce undernutrition and bring about well-nourished populations by improving health and nutritional practices. Measuring progress towards its ambitious goals is key, and the initiative is committed to rigorous monitoring and evaluation of its investments to track progress and facilitate results-driven planning and performance management. This seminar will feature a presentation and discussion on the approach to accountability and learning used under Feed the Future. Emily Hogue will discuss the tools and practices used to measure progress, provide accountability to stakeholders, and promote learning among initiative partners to ensure the effectiveness of U.S. Government food security efforts.
