Agriculture and Food Production

Sustainable food production is a critical component to meeting the demands and challenges faced by agriculture worldwide. IFPRI’s research in this area includes looking at emerging food and agricultural technologies that can advance food and nutrition security. Innovations in improved natural resource management policies, climate and energy policies, bio-safety systems, property rights, and collective action are a top focus. Research also includes analyses that can help preempt and discern future threats to food and nutrition security and make certain that scarce budgetary resources are directed toward development priorities that achieve the highest impact.
