Siwa Msangi



Senior Research Fellow
202 862-5663


Siwa Msangi is a Senior Research Fellow in the Environment and Production Technology Division, and works under IFPRI's research theme on Natural Resource Management. Siwa’s research focuses on the major socio-economic and bio-physical drivers affecting agricultural production systems, and their impacts on trade, nutrition, poverty and the environment. While a great deal of his current research activity focuses on the sustainable intensification of agriculture, and the interactions of agriculture and energy, Siwa has a broader research background in natural resource management -- especially that of surface and groundwater management policy. Siwa also has research interests in livestock and aquatic production systems, and their interaction with the environment.

A Tanzanian national, Siwa joined IFPRI in August 2004 as a post-doctoral fellow, after obtaining his degree in Agricultural & Resource Economics at the University of California at Davis. He earned a Masters degree in International Development Policy at the Food Policy Research Institute at Stanford University, where he also received an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering.

Complimentary One-Time Access to the article 'Consensus and contention in the food-versus-fuel debate' by Mark W. Rosegrant; and Siwa Msangi.
