CAADP Featured as Main Element of Support to Vulnerable in G-20 Leader’s Statement

September 29, 2009

At the close of the G-20 Summit in Pittsburgh, USA that ran from September 24-25, 2009, the official Leader’s Statement was released. The statement promotes strengthening financial supervision and regulation for ensuring economic growth and job creation worldwide. In addition, it calls for a strengthening of support to the world’s most vulnerable populations through sustained funding and targeted investments to long-term food security. To do this, the leaders call upon the World Bank to work with interested donors and organizations to develop a multilateral trust fund to scale-up agricultural assistance to low-income countries. This fund will support innovative bilateral and multilateral efforts to improve global nutrition and build sustainable agricultural systems, including programs like those developed through the Comprehensive African Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP).

The complete leader’s statement is available online.
