Food Security III Cooperative Agreement, Michigan State University | Land Portal

On September 30, 2002, USAID awarded the Food Security III Cooperative Agreement (under a Leader with Associates [LWA] Agreement mode) to the Department of Agriculture, Food and Resource Economics at Michigan State University. It was a potential 10-year project, with renewal after the first 5 years contingent on an evaluation. The evaluation of the first 5 years was favorable, and the FS III Leader Award was extended for the remaining 5 years, through September 30, 2012. In USAID the project was managed in the EGAT and later Food Security Bureaus in close cooperation with the Africa Bureau.

The triple challenge of rapid population growth, declining agricultural productivity, and natural resource degradation are not isolated from one another; they are intimately related. However, strategic planning and development programming tend to focus on individual sectors such as the environment, agriculture, and population; they do not explicitly take into account the compatibilities and inconsistencies among them. Farm households and their livelihood strategies are at the core of the intersectoral linkages approach advocated in this chapter.
