The EBRD's Private Sector for Food Security Initiativecontinues to support the agribusiness sector, championing the role of private companies in boosting food production, improving food quality and setting incentives to create the right policy environment for sector-wide growth. The Initiative fosters private sector involvement in food security with the view that food production is first and foremost a private sector activity.
The 2014 Annual Report highlights achievements in keeping with the Initiative's main priorities:
Upgrading food quality standards and animal welfare practices
Improving policy transparency through public-private platforms
Responding to price volatility through improved access to finance
