Question 4: FFP's Contribution to USAID's Mission

Posted by Patrick Coonan on 20 Aug 2014

During a plenary session at the TOPS/FSN Network Knowledge Sharing Meeting in July 2014, Susan Bradley of Food for Peace (FFP) asked the food security implementers in the room for their thoughts on key questions regarding the updating of the FFP Strategic Plan. This is the fourth question in that series. 

We welcome your thoughts and will be sharing your ideas directly with FFP. You can view the small group report out from the plenary session for this question by skipping to minute 46:08 of this recording.

USAID’s new Mission Statement is “We partner to end extreme poverty and promote resilient, democratic societies while advancing our security and prosperity.”

Does FFP’s current Strategic Goal – “Food Insecurity in Vulnerable Populations Reduced” adequately capture FFP’s potential contribution to USAID’s mission?

Does it Have To?

No. The statement does not adequately capture FFPs potential contribution to USAIDs mission. We believe that resilience nor prosperity aspects are included. Food security is comprehensive; although, USAID needs to address the whole mission statement, perhaps FFP does not have to.
