The brochure offers an overview of five key areas that will be given more emphasis across the PIM research portfolio in 2019-2021.
The CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) leads action-oriented research to provide support for policies that help poor farmers, both men and women, improve their lives, produce nutritious and affordable foods, and protect the soil, water, and biodiversity in rural landscapes.
PIM is one of the CGIAR’s Global Integrating Programs. PIM is led by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) with contributions from all 15 CGIAR Research Centers and 4 external managing partners: KIT Royal Tropical Institute, Michigan State University, University of Oxford, and Wageningen University and Research Centre.
PIM’s research results and capacity development efforts contribute to poverty reduction, better nutrition and health, and good stewardship of natural resources.
PIM is a global program, with special emphasis on Africa south of the Sahara, South Asia, and selected countries in East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Latin America.
