By the middle of this century, more than 9 billion people will need healthy and nutritious food. Agricultural systems will require new knowledge, new investment, and flexibility to adapt quickly to change. The ability to attract investment into agriculture, to deploy it well, and to redeploy it rapidly depends critically on the policies, institutions, and markets that underpin the food system. This is the domain of PIM. PIM's policy research is essential for the success of CGIAR’s broader effort to reduce poverty, increase food security, improve nutrition and health, and manage natural resources better.

This report highlights some of the most notable achievements and new directions of the program during its first eighteen months of operations. We invite you to learn more about PIM's contribution to policy research for a food secure future by downloading the report from the IFPRI website here.
