Several national and international NGOs have issued a statement on the G8 New Alliance for Food Security reiterating calls for radical changes to the initiative or stopping it altogether.

"More than two years after the launch of the G8 New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, what
we have seen of its ‘progress’ does not change our assessment that the New Alliance actually
undermines food security, nutrition and the progressive realization of the right to food in Africa. First
on-the-ground research suggests a dramatic gap between development rhetoric and impacts. There
is no sign that the New Alliance is lifting African people out of poverty, but the promise to “unleash
the power of the private sector” is very visibly being fulfilled. Although the New Alliance rhetorically
refers to the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP), we clearly see that
the processes and components of CAADP targeted to the benefits small-scale food producers are
sidelined.
