Highlights of recent IFPRI food policy research for DFID

Reducing poverty and hunger through food policy research

International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)
outcome stories

Through its food policy research, IFPRI—in collaboration with many longstanding partners, including DFID—has contributed to reducing poverty and improving food security for the world’s poor. According to a landmark 2003 study on the impact of crop improvement research from 1965 to 1998, agricultural research is a good investment: every US$1 invested in CGIAR research yields approximately US$9 worth of additional food in the developing world. By serving as a trusted voice on food policy issues, IFPRI helps to change thinking and provide evidence about how to improve food and nutrition security. This brochure highlights some of the key collaborations between IFPRI and DFID.
