Global Center for Food Systems Innovation (GCFSI)

The GCFSI is one of eight development labs funded by US Global Development Lab at USAID.

Global Center for Food Systems Innovation (GCFSI)

GCFSI works on improving food systems in a world facing shrinking natural resources, changing climate and rapidly increasing demand, all in a context of transformative technological changes. The goal is to find creative ways to overcome the problems of shrinking farm land in developing countries, help under-resourced farmers deal with less rainfall due to climate change and develop plans to improve systems dealing with food production, storage, processing, packaging, transportation and distribution strained by larger urban population.
