Global lenders need to offer debt relief to crisis-hit countries (Financial Express)
- Impact Area
The Financial Express (Bangladesh) published an interview with Johan Swinnen, IFPRI Director General and Managing Director, Systems Transformation, CGIAR, in which he answered questions concerning global hunger, malnutrition, and the role IFPRI is playing in helping to solve those issues.
Swinnen said, “There is clear evidence that IFPRI, working with its partners in Bangladesh, has made important contributions to global food and nutrition security. Partnerships we have built with local, national, and regional institutions across the globe, including those in Bangladesh, have been key to being able to provide decision-makers with actionable research insights and data tools to foster healthy, equitable, and sustainable food systems.”
The interview was published on the day when IFPRI and BIMSTEC (Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-sectoral Technical Economic Cooperation) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on collaboration in agricultural trade and investment, technological innovation in agricultural and promotion of good agricultural practices (March 5, 2023).
