As IFPRI’s mandate makes clear, in order for the Institute’s well-communicated, evidence-based research to inform sound food policy decisions and have a lasting effect on the ground, the capacity to implement those policies and replicate research methods must be strong. The Partnership, Impact, and Capacity Strengthening Unit (PIC) was formed in mid-2010 to streamline IFPRI’s activities in these areas and reinforce the Institute’s commitment to collaboration, accountability, and results.
