Fighting hunger and promoting food security is a core tenant of SDCs international engagement. This can consist of short-term, post-disaster humanitarian assistance, or it can mean longer term engagement that is designed to address root causes and help beneficiaries establish durable structural solutions. Beyond this, SDC also supports international research and is engaged in multilateral processes and dialogue.
As a growing knowledge-management hub, the A&FS Network sits at the heart of this. This page is designed to direct you to various SDC-internal resources which will help you discover more of what SDC is undertaking in areas related to food systems.
