IFPRI and the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) recently completed a joint stock taking study of IFPRI’s experience with country programs and its more general policy of outposting research staff to developing countries. Several reports have been produced as part of the study and placed on the IFPRI website along with a summary blog here.

This seminar will present and discuss the findings and recommendations, and panel members from other organizations that outpost staff for similar reasons (World Bank, USAID, MSU) will share and compare their experiences.

The evaluation of IFPRI country strategy programs was conducted and co-financed by IFPRI and PIM.
