Cali, Colombia, hosts the Alliance’s regional hub for the Americas.
Climate change, biodiversity loss, environmental degradation, and malnutrition are overtaxing economic, social, political, environmental and health systems, gradually compromising our food and nutritional security.
This is particularly true for Latin America and the Caribbean, where 18.5 million people are in acute food insecurity because of economic and climate-related factors (Food Security Information Network, 2020). To further compound the problem, inefficient food production systems are deploying valuable genetic, water, and land resources and climate change is threatening food security for the most vulnerable, especially women, rural communities, and indigenous peoples.
Working at the nexus of agriculture, the environment, and nutrition, the Alliance is using science and research to sustain a pivot from this negative course of action.
Through ad hoc initiatives, co-developed and managed with our network of partners, we are leading the sustainable development of the Region.
