About 2/2 … /IFPRI’s Vision: A World Free of Hunger and Malnutrition. 

This vision is based on the human rights to adequate food and freedom from hunger, and the recognition of the dignity inherent in all human beings. It is a vision of a world where every person has secure access to sufficient and safe food to sustain a healthy and productive life and where food-related policy decisions are made transparently, including the participation of consumers and producers.

IFPRI’s Mission: To Provide Policy Solutions That Reduce Poverty and End Hunger and Malnutrition.

  • 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:

  • 1. Sound and appropriate local, national, and international public policies are essential to achieving sustainable food security and nutritional improvement.
  • 2. 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.

IFPRI’s mission focuses on:

  • identifying and analyzing alternative international, national, and local policies in support of improved food security and nutrition, emphasizing low-income countries and poor people and the sound management of the natural resource base that supports agriculture;
  • contributing to capacity strengthening of people and institutions in developing countries that conduct research on food, agriculture, and nutrition policies; and
  • actively engaging in policy communications, making research results available to all those in a position to apply or use them, and carrying out dialogues with those users to link research and policy action.
