The authors reflect on the first year of the Global Food Security Strategy under Feed the Future, taking into consideration renewed investment in resilience, sustainability, nutrition, and market systems. Coordination and collaboration between the public and private sector are also highlighted as essential actions to facilitate inclusive and sustainable agriculture-led economic growth. Strengthening commercial pathways can make agriculture production more efficient, provide a more nutritious product, and increase incomes, all while meeting the GFSS mandate on sustainability and scaling. This blog post introduces five case studies conducted by USAID to assess the key drivers of successful scaling of pro-poor agricultural innovations through commercial pathways.
