International Dietary Data Expansion Project (INDDEX)


The International Dietary Data Expansion Project (INDDEX) runs from 2015-2018. The project, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is led by Tufts University, with IFPRI and FAO as partners.  INDDEX’s primary goal is to help countries collect better quality food consumption and intake data and to facilitate the collection, availability, accessibility, and use of these data in making program and policy decisions about food, nutrition and agriculture. IFPRI’s role in the project focuses primarily on strengthening household consumption and expenditure surveys (HCES) at both the global and national levels to make them a better source of nutrition information and foster their use for decision making.
