The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) believes that, by working together, the global community can sustainably defeat hunger and malnutrition. Collaborating with development practitioners, policymakers, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector, IFPRI contributes to achieving this goal by providing needed evidence for country- and region-led policies that help ensure that all people have access to safe, sufficient, nutritious, and sustainably grown food.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach, our researchers ask questions such as the following:

  • What policies help farmers manage scarce resources and grow more food?
  • What programs can ensure lifelong nutrition and good health?
  • How can smallholder farmers gain better access to markets?
  • How can countries promote development that doesn’t leave poor people behind?
