With funding from FoodSystems 2030, the Global Alliance for Food Security has now launched the new GAFS Global Food and Nutrition Security Dashboard’s Advance section. The gradual development of this section will bring together indicators from different sources on emerging risks for food security and nutrition and their potential impacts, as well as potential measures to help strengthen agri-food systems to improve food security and nutritional outcomes. 

Looking ahead, there are more exciting developments on the horizon. The Dashboard will include new indicators in the Advance section, including Real-Time Food Prices and Short-Term Caloric Needs Financing and WFP’s Market Functionality Index, among others.

With support from FoodSystems 2030, the World Bank is focused on embedding the One Health approach across the institution and in regions worldwide. This includes Central Asia, where advisory and analytical work underpinned the One Health Framework for Action, which aims to contribute to pandemic preparedness, with priority given to zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance, and food safety. The framework also provides an investment roadmap for the region still struggling with the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. In November 2022, five Central Asian countries signed a joint communiqué agreeing to adopt the framework, including establishing governance structures and engaging in joint resource mobilization, data sharing, and preparatory work to implement national and regional activities.

Advice and analysis funded by FoodSystems 2030 helped lay the groundwork for regional cooperation in Central Asia on pandemic preparedness that prioritizes zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance, and food safety.

We are thrilled that the UK's Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office has committed up to £45 million in support over the next 5 years to FoodSystems 2030! This funding will help countries repurpose current agricultural support to better outcomes for healthy people, planet and economy, progressing climate and development goals. Thank you to the UK!


FS2030 is now in an exciting phase of working with countries to help them progress on implementing important reforms. The Trust Fund recently awarded Bangladesh, Ghana, Malawi, Mozambique and Madagascar with implementation support grants totalling $75 million. The grants will finance the design and implementation of activities to repurpose public policy and expenditure programs and scale them up through World Bank operations.

  • In Bangladesh, current support in the form of fertilizer subsidies will be repurposed and delivered as direct support to farmers through a new e-voucher system, complemented by critical services.  The program aims to scale up these changes to eventually repurpose the current Fertilizer Subsidy Program of over US$2 billion.
  • In Ghana, the existing agricultural public subsidy program will be reoriented towards a private sector-driven and digital platform-based inputs support delivery mechanism to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of public expenditure in the sector. The innovative biometric e-Agric system will be scaled up and bundled services will be provided through the digital platform.
