Special Event

Launch of IFPRI's 2014-2015 Global Food Policy Report

Mar 18, 2015 - 08:30 pm to 09:15 pm EDT

The 2014–2015 Global Food Policy Report, IFPRI’s flagship publication, puts into perspective the major food policy issues, developments, and decisions in 2014 and highlights challenges and opportunities for 2015. The report calls for a renewed focus on middle-income countries, which are home to the majority of the world’s hungry and malnourished. It also covers other issues that are integral to achieving food and nutrition security, including sanitation, family farming, social protection, food safety, conflicts, and aquaculture.

Shenggen Fan will present an overview of the report, Ertharin Cousin will reflect on the role of middle-income countries in the fight against hunger and malnutrition, and Gwendolyn Stansbury will present data visualizations of key food policy indicators and the results of a global opinion poll.
