GCP-2 project Follow the Food final factsheet“Follow the Food – Dutch agribusiness and local food security in Africa” is a Global Challenges Programme (GCP) project which received funding in the second Call.

GCP research is carried out in consortia consisting of Southern and Northern scientific and other partners. The projects have a duration of four to five years and are aimed at enhancing the understanding of food and nutrition security in Low- and Middle-Income Countries. In April 2015, six Integrated Projects have been awarded funding as part of the GCP second Call, with focus on inclusive business and regional trade. The projects will be finished in the course of 2020.

One of the final findings of this GPC-2 project is that foreign investments in local food systems in Ethiopia, Kenya and Ghana focusing on improving productivity, product quality and income, are not necessarily leading to better food & nutrition conditions, because (cultural preferences, spending priorities) intervene.
