“A 2020 VISION FOR FOOD, AGRICULTURE, AND THE ENVIRONMENT” IS AN INITIATIVE OF THE INTERNATIONAL FOOD POLICY RESEARCH INSTITUTE (IFPRI) TO FEED THE WORLD, REDUCE POVERTY, AND PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT.

“2020 Vision for Food, Agriculture, and the Environment” is an initiative of the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) to develop a shared vision and consensus for action on how to meet future world food needs while reducing poverty and protecting the environment.

This set of Focus briefs presents technical research results that encompass a wide range of subjects drawn from research on policy-relevant aspects of agriculture, poverty, nutrition, and the environment. It contains materials that IFPRI believes are of key interest to those involved in addressing emerging food and development problems.

This set of Focus briefs has been prepared for the IFPRI 2020 conference on “Sustainable Food Security For All By 2020,” Bonn, Germany, September 4-6, 2001, sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through the German Foundation for International Development (DSE-ZEL) in cooperation with the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ-BEAF); Aventis CropScience; CARE; Cargill Inc.; Deutsche Welthungerhilfe; EuronAid; International Fund for Agricultural Development; Mellemfolkeligt Samvirke (Danish Association for International Co-operation); Syngenta; and World Vision International.

The 2020 Vision Initiative also gratefully acknowledges support from the following donors: Canadian International Development Agency; Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA); Instituto Nacional de Investigaci TechnologAgraria y Alimentaria (Spain); Rockefeller Foundation; Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA); and Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation (SDC).
