About Farming First

Farming First is the leading source for the latest insights, news and case studies on agricultural innovation for development.

As a hub for diverse voices from across the agriculture sector globally, we capture, centralise and amplify the thought leadership and evidence of the organisations and experts driving progress in support of sustainable food systems.

We aim to share interesting stories of promising innovations and the ways they are addressing complex and interconnected challenges from hunger and malnutrition, to climate action and vibrant rural livelihoods.

Our history

Farming First is built on a more than decade-long history as a multi-stakeholder coalition of more than 180 organisations representing the world’s farmers, scientists, engineers and industry as well as agricultural development organisations. United as Farming First, the coalition advocated for the centrality of agriculture among the world’s goals for sustainable development.
