Nongovernmental Spending on Food Security

InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S.-based international NGOs, has committed that its members will collectively spend more than $1 billion from October 2012 to September 2015. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and InterAction announced this pledge at an event on the sidelines of the 2012 United Nations General Assembly in New York. Over 30 InterAction members (see reverse side) have joined our $1 billion food security pledge, and we are continuing to recruit additional members.

InterAction member NGOs will spend more than $1 billion in private funds on programs that advance food security, agriculture and nutrition over the next three years.

A True Partner

InterAction member NGOs are committed to working alongside local communities. Our members have: • Decades-long relationships with local communities and organizations • Established connections with local governments and the private sector • Technical expertise in food security, agriculture and nutrition • Local credibility Our private resources and strong local links complement the efforts of the U.S. government and others to meet development goals worldwide. InterAction looks forward to a continuing dialogue with the Obama administration and Congress to better leverage our community in partnership with the U.S. government.
