InterAction is the largest coalition of U.S.-based international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) focused on the world’s poor and most vulnerable people.
At InterAction, we recognize that our global challenges are interconnected and that we can’t tackle any of them without addressing all of them. That’s why we create a forum for leading NGOs, global thought leaders and policymakers to address our challenges collectively. Leveraging our shared expertise, on-the-ground insights from our 180 member organizations and strategic analyses of the foreign aid budget, we deliver a bold, new agenda to end global poverty and deliver humanitarian aid in every developing country.
Worldwide, more than 854 million people are chronically hungry; 75 percent live in rural areas and depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. InterAction seeks to increase donor investments in food security and agriculture and to improve the quality of donor and NGO programming. Through information sharing, peer learning and documenting best practices, InterAction supports member agencies in strengthening field programs and in shaping the policies of the U.S. government and multilateral institutions. Investments in food security and agricultural development can act as engines of economic growth and poverty reduction.
