The Alliance Against Hunger and Malnutrition
The Alliance Against Hunger and Malnutrition (AAHM) is a global initiative that builds partnerships between organizations and institutions united to combat hunger and malnutrition.
The AAHM encourages, facilitates and supports the creation of National and Regional Alliances Against Hunger and Malnutrition – networks committed to achieving better food security and nutrition - and offers support as they grow.
Founded in 2003 by the three UN Rome-based agencies – Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), World Food Programme (WFP), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and Bioversity International, the AAHM mission is to promote a coordinated initiative to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), in particular:
• MDG 1 Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger;
• MDG 8 Develop a global partnership for development.
As a global initiative, the Alliance Against Hunger and Malnutrition serves as a platform, bringing together a wide range of organizations and institutions interested in tackling hunger and malnutrition. These may include governments, NGOs, civil society organizations (local farmers’ organizations, community-based organizations, etc.), UN agencies, university and research institutions, religious groups, corporate donors and philanthropic foundations, food producers, agribusinesses, and the private sector.
Specifically, AAHM encourages, facilitates and supports the creation of National and Regional Alliances Against Hunger and Malnutrition and offers support as they grow.
