Millions Fed: Proven Successes in Agricultural Development – Nairobi

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and CGIAR Collective Action in East and Southern Africa, will  hold  a  Policy seminar on Millions Fed: Proven Successes in Agricultural Development on 27 January at ILRI Nairobi, Kenya.  The Key speaker will be David Spielman one of the authors of the study, and chief guest will be Carlos Sere.

Overview
Learning from successes in agricultural development is now more urgent than ever.  Progress in feeding the world’s billions has slowed, while the challenge of feeding its future millions remains enormous and is subject to new uncertainties in the global food and agricultural systems.

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), with support from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, embarked on a project to identify and assess interventions in agricultural development that have substantially reduced hunger and poverty; to document evidence about where, when, and why these interventions succeeded; to learn about the key drivers and factors underlying success; and to share lessons to help inform better agricultural policy and investment decisions in the future.  Following a rigorous review process, the project ultimately identified 20 proven successes in agricultural development, several of which highlight policies, programs, and investments in sub-Saharan Africa.  This event will present what worked, why it worked, and what we can learn from these successes.
