L'Aquila Food Security Initiative Final Report 2012

The L’Aquila Food Security Initiative (AFSI) was launched at the 2009 G-8 Summit in L’Aquila, Italy. There, global leaders agreed to reverse a decades-long decline in investment in agriculture and to “do business differently” by taking a comprehensive approach to ensuring food security, coordinating effectively, supporting country-owned processes and plans, engaging multilateral institutions in advancing efforts to promote food security worldwide, and delivering on sustained and accountable commitments.

At L’Aquila, President Obama announced the United States would invest at least $3.5 billion over three years in global food security. This initial U.S. commitment helped to leverage more than $18 billion from other G-8 governments and donors to promote food security and nutrition worldwide.

As AFSI’s three-year financial pledge period came to an end in December 2012, the United States announced during the second AFSI meeting of 2012 in Maputo, Mozambique on December 5, that AFSI donors collectively met their commitment to mobilize more than $22 billion in global food security investments over three years and are well on their way toward fully disbursing those funds.
