Setting up a policy dialogue
IFPRI strives to promote dialogue between Chinese researchers, policy advisors, decisionmakers, civil society organizations, and international organizations. This dialogue takes place both at the national level, where most policies are formulated, and at the local level, where Chinese administrative systems have been decentralized. The Program communicates its policy research findings through a wide range of tools, such as media outreach, publications, and events. The latter include national and international policy conferences, country-level workshops, roundtable discussions, and high-level policy dialogues.
