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 booklet 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.

IFPRI is one of 16 Future Harvest centers and receives its principal funding from 58 governments, private foundations, and international and regional organizations known as the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research.
Hunger will not take a day to end.
It is not going to end tomorrow or the day after.
And it is certainly not going to end
suddenly by itself,
for nothing good comes easy.
