The platform strategy has three distinct yet complementary elements: strategic influencing, knowledge sharing and networking and convening.
We help shape the thinking, policies and programming of the global donor community about food systems and rural development to accelerate progress towards the SDGs and longer-term prosperity and sustainability.
We broker the sharing of evidence, lessons, insights and technical expertise necessary for donors to align efforts, learn from each other and improve the impact of their food system and rural-development related policies and programmes.
We strengthen networking, relationships and communication between donors and other actors as a foundation for collaboration and innovation.
Our Strategic Plan 2021-2025
In 2021, the Platform adopted a new vision that advocates a radical transformation of global food systems to achieve better access to safe and nutritious food, improved environmental sustainability and more prosperous rural communities.
The Strategic Plan 2021-2025 situates the work of the Platform across the domains of food systems, food and nutrition security, agriculture and rural livelihoods. It recognizes the Platform’s particular focus and orientation towards SDG 2 and the intersection with other SDGs.
While staying true to the original intent and purpose of the Platform, the Strategic Plan actions changes to the its vision, mission and objectives to better reflect the changing operating context and environment of the donor community to ensure its ongoing relevance.
