Mission Measurement Announces Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action-Heifer International a Named Partner

NEW YORK, NY

MISSION MEASUREMENT ANNOUNCES CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE COMMITMENT TO ACTION: CODIFYING THE KEY SUCCESS FACTORS TO IMPROVE FOOD SECURITY

Leaders in Food Security join forces to create a new model to predict food security program effectiveness

 New York, February 10, 2015 -- Today, at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Winter meeting, President Clinton announced a new Commitment to Action designed to increase the impact of food security programs. A cross-sector partnership, The Food Security Genome, will systematically code the vast evidence-base drawing from corporate, NGO, academic and government resources in order to quantify outcomes, identify key success factors and create critical benchmark data in this vital area. The resulting “genomic” model will turn decades of data into actionable insights that enable users to predict the efficacy and cost per outcome for any food security program. This tool, which will focus first on the USA and then expand globally, will allow practitioners to design more impactful programs, thereby saving funders and implementers significant time and money and improving the lives of millions of beneficiaries.

The Food Security Genome is part of the Impact Genome Project™. It is led by Jason Saul, Founder and CEO of Mission Measurement and Nolan Gasser, Chief Genomic Officer at Mission Measurement and famed architect of Pandora’s Music Genome Project™. Joining Mission Measurement in this effort are eight initial Food Security Genome Consortium members. They include leading corporations/corporate foundations (General Mills Foundation, Tyson Foods, etc.) and leading NGOs (Capital Area Food Bank, CARE, Heifer International and Share Our Strength).

“The greatest value of measurement occurs before we invest in social programs. Every other sector uses predictive data to make more informed decisions and to forecast expected outcomes. The social sector deserves the same. If we want to double our impact, we need to be able to compare investment opportunities, benchmark returns and determine not only what works but what works best.” said Jason Saul, Founder and CEO of Mission Measurement.

The goal of the Food Security Genome is to apply Mission Measurement’s research methodology to create benchmarks and predictive models that prove which interventions lead to impact.

“This type of collaborative partnership is valuable to Heifer International as we are able to share data, assess results and make impactful improvements ending the cycle of hunger and food insecurity," said Bob Bloom, Heifer International’s Chief Financial Officer
