Feed the Future Enabling Environment for Food Security

The Feed the Future Enabling Environment for Food Security program is USAID's leading global technical assistance mechanism for addressing legal, institutional, and market constraints affecting food security. The program helps USAID Missions create more favorable legal and regulatory conditions to spur commercial and government investment in agriculture. Using state-of-the-art tools and evidence, the program helps USAID identify cost-effective and transformative opportunities to strengthen the agricultural enabling environment–a critical pillar for achieving the long-term inclusive and sustainable market development needed to accomplish the US government's Global Food Security Strategy. You can learn more on our AgriLinks project page or read our two-page project overview. A full resource library is coming soon.

USAID-BEST had the sole mandate of providing objective and independent technical research on food assistance and agricultural markets to USAID’s Office of Food for Peace. USAID-BEST conducted research studies on agricultural markets and food assistance programs globally, and provided USAID with recommendations to inform the design of food security programs. The project produced more than six years’ worth of literature on food assistance and markets, which is now housed within USAID. USAID-BEST completed a total of 44 studies in 27 countries over the life of the project, conducting field research in the following countries: Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Burma, Burundi, Cambodia, Côte d’Ivoire, Dominican Republic, DR Congo, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Nepal, Niger, Peru, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
USAID-EAT supported the US government's global efforts to create conditions for agricultural sector growth and productivity. The project was based on substantial academic and field experience that suggests a sound legal, regulatory, and institutional environment is necessary for growth in the agricultural sector. USAID-EAT offered a suite of customizable analytical products for identifying, diagnosing, and addressing the policy and regulatory constraints to agricultural growth.
