CGIAR Research Program: Policies Institutions and Markets
The Global Futures and CGIAR Strategic Foresight Program aims to expand and deepen the preeminent platform for economic and biophysical modeling of agricultural technology and policy driven food supply response, to allow research to be better targeted to small farmers in order to increase production and income in particular geographies. A central goal of the program is to build upon the scientific strengths of the models and strong cross-center networks to work toward institutionalization of open and transparent quantitative methods for ex ante assessment of investment and policy reform alternatives within CGIAR under alternative future scenarios, accounting for the impacts of changing availability of quality of land and water, climate change, and socioeconomic developments, and gender and nutrition outcomes.
