Our Food Security programme focuses on policy solutions that secure the right to healthy, safe and sufficient food and works to enhance south-south cooperation. We connect and advise policy-makers on pioneering initiatives from different parts of the world that have proven successful in fighting hunger and malnutrition. Our research found Brazil’s Zero Hunger Strategy, which applies a multi-stakeholder approach to fighting poverty and hunger, to be an inspiring and highly adaptable initiative.
One of our main focuses is spreading the Model of Belo Horizonte to urban areas of southern Africa. As a result of our advocacy work with government representatives of Namibia, elements of this model are already being transferred to the African country, with some impressive impacts.
