Program launch: IFPRI, Rwanda government partner on policy analysis, capacity strengthening for rural transformation

Building on its remarkable social and economic progress over the past two decades, Rwanda is now accelerating its agenda for sustainable development and inclusive growth, known as the National Strategy for Transformation, by reinforcing its emphasis on agriculture, nutrition, and rural transformation. To support this effort, IFPRI has partnered with the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources (MINAGRI) in creating the new Rwanda Agricultural Policy Analysis and Capacity Development Program.

The program launched at a Dec. 6 event in Kigali attended by 100 high-level government officials, development partners, other key stakeholders, and the media.
