Sustainable and resilient food systems that ensure food, nutrition and economic security for all.
To end global food and nutrition insecurity by building bridges between local partners and Israel's leading experts to create life-changing agricultural solutions.
Israel overcame huge challenges odds to emerge as a global powerhouse in agriculture and water and has unique value to share:
Experience in creating an effective enabling environment through holistic policies and farmer centred systems.
Expertise Israel boasts world-class technical know-how spanning the production value chain.
Agri-Tech Innovation As the Start-Up Nation Israel not only has cutting edge technologies but a renowned capacity to innovate.
Entrepreneurial Mindset Behind so much of Israel's success lies an entrepreneurial mindset and the ability think outside the box.
Our Strategic Approach
In response to global food insecurity and in light of Israel’s agricultural experience, expertise and capacity to innovate we work to create 3 levels of changes:
Supporting Agricultural Producers
Building their capacity to be more productive, profitable, resilient and sustainable.
HOW? By building teams of Israeli experts who work with local partners to share knowledge and co-design impactful solutions. We also fund co-development and adaptation of Israeli agricultural technologies.
Strengthening Food Systems
Supporting global leadership to improve efficacy and resilience.
HOW? We do this by sharing lessons from the systems that Israel established and by providing high level advisory and implementation support to governments and international organizations
Developing New Solutions
Creating new innovation to sustainably feed the world tomorrow.
HOW? We do this by designing projects and raising funds for cutting edge applied scientific research and supporting the next generation of Israeli agricultural scientists.
The three changes are intimately related and contribute to different processes which play a vital role in agricultural transformation
Our work to Strengthen Food Systems operates at the systemic level targeting a 'top-down' paradigm shift to create an enabling environment for farmers.
Our work to Support Global Producers operates at the individual and community level instigating change from the 'bottom-up'.
And New Solutions are developed to address the challenges identified by farmers and global systems.
The VIP Model
The best solutions are created in true partnership and we believe in harnessing a rich diversity of views, experiences, skills and expertise. We do this in two ways.
We work with partners to create two way relationships that merge local insights with Israel's cutting-edge expertise, experiences, innovations and problem solving capacities.
Replicating Israel's proven approach, we build multi-disciplinary technical teams incorporating expertise across the value chain, and multi-disciplinary project teams integrating technical experts, economists and development professionals.
We believe our work not only creates value for citizens all over the world, but also for The State of Israel.
