Agriculture and Food Security

Agriculture upholds a country’s food security and the health of its people and economy. Abt Associates delivers services to make farming a steady path to economic growth, with measurable, lasting advances in household nutrition and livelihoods for women and men.
How do we do this? By building on the pillars of food security — availability, access to and consumption of food within stable systems — with multiple, interconnected approaches to improving agriculture: nutrition-sensitive, market-oriented, and climate-smart. Our specialties include identifying paths to a better enabling environment, addressing post-harvest food loss, and strengthening food system value chains.
We work with and for smallholder farmers, entrepreneurs, civil society, associations, and national and local governments. Our comprehensive approach speeds uptake and adoption of policies, technologies, services and tools.
In the last decade, Abt has managed agriculture and food security projects in Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Eastern Europe. Our core offerings and services include:
