Empowering women, enhancing nutrition, and ending poverty: IFPRI and Canada

Global changes with wide-reaching impacts include rapid urbanization, climate change, conflict-driven migration, and dietary transitions as well as uncertainty regarding trade and foreign investment. More than ever, responding to these challenges will require a systems-oriented, multidisciplinary approach to reshaping agriculture and food systems so that they work for everyone. IFPRI is spearheading research to understand and address these trends, building evidence for sound policies at the country and regional levels, and continuing to focus on empowering women. IFPRI’s long-standing partnership with Canada has generated cutting-edge research in support of improved food security and nutrition, particularly for women and children, and gender equity, and IFPRI looks forward to continuing to work together to end hunger and malnutrition.
