Highlights of recent IFPRI food policy research for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Reducing poverty and hunger through food policy research

For the past 35 years, IFPRI has worked to provide solid research and evidence-based policy options to partners in donor and recipient countries. The issues have changed over time, shifting from food subsidies and commercialization of agriculture in the early years to a more comprehensive approach to food and nutrition security in the 2000s, with a focus on macroeconomic situations, trade and marketing, undernourishment and micronutrient malnutrition, technology, the environment, and building capacity within individual countries. Working with many longstanding partners, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, IFPRI has produced food policy research that has contributed to reducing poverty and improving food security for the world’s poor.

This brochure highlights some of the key projects in which IFPRI and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have collaborated, in some instances in partnership with other institutions.
