The New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, launched at the G8 summit in 2012, promised to reduce poverty for 50 million people over the next ten years by increasing private investment and agriculture-led growth in selected African countries.

This briefing shows how, one year on, evidence about its implementation presents a worrying picture of the early performance of the initiative. Donors, developing country governments, and participating companies must make key reforms, or the New Alliance risks harming rather than helping small-scale producers.
