Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

In a February 2012 speech, Bill Gates declared, “If you care about the poorest, you care about agriculture. Investments in agriculture are the best weapons against hunger and poverty, and they have made life better for billions of people.”

For many years, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) has been actively working with IFPRI to bring this vision into action, focusing on sustainable agricultural growth, investment in agricultural research, provision of safety nets to strengthen resilience, prioritization of nutrition interventions for women and children, property rights and management of natural resources, and much more. Together, BMGF and IFPRI have produced cutting-edge research and set measurable targets for increasing agricultural productivity.

Highlights of this innovative collaboration is in this brochure.
