Country Strategies

IFPRI researchers explore the factors that determine countries’ choices of development pathways. They pinpoint the necessary preconditions for effective policy changes and identify the main drivers of economic growth, agricultural transformation, increased food security, and poverty reduction for developing countries.

Through intensive and sustained country-based research, capacity building, and policy communication programs that promote evidence-based decisionmaking, IFPRI researchers provide a variety of strategic planning resources for agricultural ministries, national policy research institutes, and other stakeholders, including conceptual frameworks, policy-relevant analysis, analytical tools,  and knowledge management systems.
