Within USSOUTHCOM's current strategy the U.S. military seeks to build partnerships with other government agencies that also operate in the region. This includes establishing public-private partnerships to tackle the issues affecting national and regional security issues such as food security. As part of this strategy USSOUTHCOM recently held an Interagency meeting on food security. It was a collaborative interagency effort that brought together participants from a variety of national and international organizations in addition to the Department of Defense. Participants included members from the Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, and World Vision.
