Welcome to Agrilinks! This is a space for agriculture specialists and practitioners to access current information and resources on important agriculture and food security related topics and issues. Agrilinks leverages an array of experiences, resources, and expertise to encourage and promote knowledge flow among practitioners, USAID, partners, and other organizations specializing and working on current agricultural development issues.
Agrilinks captures new learning in food security and agricultural development, disseminates it among practitioners, USAID mission staff, and other donors, and connects those actors to each other in order to improve development outcomes around the world. Using a knowledge-driven approach to food security and agricultural development, Agrilinks aims to extend and multiply the impact of the learning and innovation developed through agricultural development research and practice.
Agrilinks has launched with new features and functionality that will enable it to provide dynamic, collaborative learning environments. Agrilinks members now have many ways to tap into industry "know-how":
- Connect with colleagues through member profiles

Agrilinks is part of the U.S. Government's Feed the Future initiative, which aims to address the root causes of hunger, poverty and undernutrition, and establish a lasting foundation for change. Feed the Future works to accomplish this by cultivating and supporting a global community of food security and agricultural development practitioners and building partnerships with public sector, private sector, and NGO partners to deliver more together than we can on our own.
USAID's Bureau for Food Security (BFS) leads the Feed the Future initiative and supports Agrilinks. BFS will continue to develop a broad array of knowledge-sharing tools, strategies, and events through the Knowledge-Driven Microenterprise Development program, implemented by The QED Group, LLC and its sub-contractors, Engility and Training Resources Group.
