Description The New Vision for Agriculture, defined by World Economic Forum partners in 2009,is an initiative led by 29 global partner companies that addresses the major challenges of global food and agricultural sustainability. The initiative serves as a platform to build collaboration among stakeholders to achieve a vision of agriculture as a driver of food security, environmental sustainability and economic opportunity.

The initiative has started four major public-private partnerships, including country-level initiatives in Mexico, Vietnam, Indonesia, and India, as well as the regional partnership platform Grow Africa which includes seven African countries. At the global level, the initiative enables public-private dialogue with the G20.

Objectives The New Vision for Agriculture Initiative works to develop a shared agenda for action and to enhance multistakeholder collaboration in order to achieve sustainable agricultural growth through market-based solutions. The New Vision for Agriculture aims to increase production by 20% while decreasing emissions by 20% and reducing the prevalence of rural poverty by 20% each decade.
Activities At the country level, action-oriented partnership initiatives engage the private sector in collaboration with governments, global organizations, farmers and other leading stakeholders to accelerate sustainable agricultural growth within specific regions or food value chains. The partnerships support countries in realizing their agriculture-sector goals by aligning investments, programmes and innovations around shared priorities for agricultural growth.

At the global level, the initiative facilitates public-private dialogue with the G20, through the B20 Food Security Task Force, as well as through informal networks such as the Global Agenda Council on Food Security.

Areas of focus include increasing investment, improving environmental sustainability, strengthening markets (particularly to expand opportunities for smallholder farmers), and improving access to nutritious food.
