The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) seeks sustainable solutions for ending hunger and poverty. IFPRI was established in 1975 to identify and analyze alternative national and international strategies and policies for meeting the food needs of the developing world, with particular emphasis on low-income countries and on the poorer groups in those countries. It is a member of the CGIAR Consortium.   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: 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.   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.     OUR WORK   Programs   Development Strategies Risks & Emergencies Policy Communications Diet, Health & Food Safety Governance & Policy Processes Poverty, Nutrition & Social Protection Natural Resource Policies Capacity Strengthening Outlooks & Global Change Globalization, Trade & Markets Science & Technology     Focus Areas   Agricultural Extension Gender Program Evaluation Agriculture and Health          Governance Public Private Partnerships Avian Influenza Impact Assessment Regional Trade Agreements Bioenergy Infrastructure and Trade Risk Management Central Asia Middle East and North Africa Social Protection Climate Change Nutrition South Asia Doha Round  Poverty Southeast Asia East Asia        Poverty and Trade Water Policy Food Prices
