During the past year, IFPRI has been drafting a new institutional strategy. IFPRI’s draft strategy for 2013-2018 is intended to respond to changes in the food and agricultural policy landscape, as well as reinforce the Institute’s position as an evidence-based research organization that partners for impact. Among the strategy’s innovative elements are six research priorities that address the most critical food policy issues in the major regions where IFPRI carries out its work. The draft strategy was developed through a year-long process that included a comprehensive landscape scan, research and literature reviews, regional consultations, and the collection of inputs from key stakeholders.
The Institute welcomes comments on the strategy from the public. Feedback can be emailed to (Ms.) Sivan Yosef at email@example.com by Wednesday, October 31, 2012.
IFPRI will incorporate the feedback received into a final strategy document, which will be presented to its Board of Trustees for its approval in December 2012.
