Analysing Global Commitments on Food Security and Diets: Implications for South Asian Countries

IFPRI is partnering with the Rockefeller Foundation to undertake a research-based approach to comprehensively take stock of the commitments towards achieving SDG2.1 and ascertain their reach and fit against current food security and diet challenges and future scenarios based on the Institute’s cutting-edge models. This high-quality evidence base can serve as the basis from which to analyze the gap between what has been promised and/or materialized, and what needs to occur to achieve SDG2.1 by 2030. The Rockefeller Foundation, IFPRI, and their partners can then use this analysis to galvanize national and global policymakers to strengthen their commitments.  Under this scope of work, the ORF is responsible for contributing to the development of a range of inputs to support dialogue on the intersection of global commitments to SDG2 with future scenarios for the world. As a first step in a consultative process, the Rockefeller Foundation and IFPRI co-hosted an event at the Rockefeller Foundation offices where preliminary findings were presented and discussed. This event took place on the side of the United Nations General Assembly held in New York in September, profiting from the presence of many relevant people in New York. This was followed by the Africa Region Consultation with the same objective but with a focus on Africa region. As a next step, Observer Research Foundation (ORF), along with the IFPRI South Asia, is hosting a consultative discussion with similar objectives to the discussion in New York but with a focus on the South Asia region.

This is a invite-only event.
