The Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations focus on many of the aims central to IFPRI’s mandate, including tackling poverty, hunger, and malnutrition. Achieving such goals requires multifaceted development strategies that generate inclusive economic growth for men, women, and youth in both urban and rural areas. Designing cost-effective strategies requires micro- and macro-analyses that take into account many of the emerging issues facing much of the developing world, including an increasingly competitive global environment for agricultural trade, the rapid expansion of cities and secondary towns, persistent high underemployment and, in many countries, protracted political transitions.
