Anti-poverty campaign group ONE has today welcomed the launch of AgResults, a new initiative to drive private sector investment into innovative agricultural solutions.
Speaking from Los Cabos, Joe Powell of ONE said:
"Too many G20 pledges have fallen by the wayside, so it is welcome that today an initiative announced in Toronto in 2010 has come to fruition.
“The AgResults initiative will help drive private sector investment into innovative agricultural solutions. It will help fund technological solutions to problems that are too often ignored.
"Canada and the UK have shown important leadership to get this initiative underway.
“But this must be the start, not the end, of what the Los Cabos summit delivers on food security.”
