The Netherlands (Ministry of Foreign Affairs)

The Netherlands has a strong commitment to food security and a long-standing partnership with IFPRI. The Dutch government singled out food security as one of its “spearheads” for bilateral development. With a focus on four pillars of food security—increased sustainable agricultural production, access to better nutrition, more efficient markets, and a better business climate—the Dutch government is well-positioned to address drivers of food insecurity. The Netherlands’ partnership has helped IFPRI’s research remain rigorous, innovative, and responsive in areas such as improving markets and trade, ensuring sustainable food production, and promoting healthy food systems. This support also extends to the IFPRI-led CGIAR Research Programs—Policies, Institutions and Markets (PIM) and Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH)—that contributes to cutting-edge research.

This brochure highlights some of the key research between IFPRI and the Netherlands.
