International Food Policy Research Institute
International Food Policy Research Institute is an organization based in Washington, D.C..
"This mission flows from the CGIAR mission: "To achieve sustainable food security and reduce poverty in developing countries through scientific research and research-related activities in the fields of agriculture, livestock, forestry, fisheries, policy, and natural resources management."
Two key premises underlie IFPRI's mission:
- Sound and appropriate local, national, and international public policies are essential to achieving sustainable food security and nutritional improvement.
- Research and the dissemination of its results are critical inputs into the process of raising the quality of food policy debate and formulating sound and appropriate policies."
