The Strategy 2020 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) recognizes sustainable food security as a crucial element of its long-term strategic framework. The Operational Plan for Sustainable Food Security in Asia and the Pacific identifies ADB's role and contributions in addressing the barriers to achieving the goal of food security by focusing on three areas of influence-productivity, connectivity, and resilience. The plan notes that many of ADB's operations in the core and other areas as specified in Strategy 2020 have significant positive impacts in addressing these food security concerns. The plan aims to increase the impacts of ADB's multisector operations on food security, particularly for the poor and disadvantaged, through greater synergy and value addition.
