What we do

Catalysing coordinated action

The Coalition aims to catalyse coordinated action to end hunger, and does this through supporting countries as they continue to work on their national food systems transformation pathways. Several countries, at different stages of implementing the pathways, have requested support. Through a match-making process the Coalition identifies exact needs, and connects countries to relevant partners.

The match-making process

The match-making process is crucial to achieve the aim of the Zero Hunger Coalition: to catalyse coordinated action to end hunger by bringing different partners and stakeholders together to collaborate and align efforts and resources, to effectively eradicate hunger and malnutrition.

As a first step to effectively tackle hunger and malnutrition, a country’s most effective policy interventions and their associated cost, must be identified. By doing so, action is based on evidence.

This evidence-base provides insight into a country's priorities and forms the basis on which investment opportunities can be further developed to achieve desired outcomes.

The match-making comes in when potential investors, such as donors and private sector through the Zero Hunger Private Sector Pledge, are connected with the country. This enables different partners to align their actions to specific country priorities to eradicate hunger and malnutrition.

To enable such a match-making process, the Zero Hunger Coalition will facilitate connections with relevant expertise and resources through increasing visibility and awareness of ongoing efforts. This can be achieved through fostering new partnerships, leveraging existing networks, and promoting exchange of insights and lessons learnt.
