    IFPRI Policy Seminar: Greening of trade policies: The EU-Mercosur agreement - 02/19/2020

    IFPRI Policy Seminar: Greening of trade policies: The EU-Mercosur agreement - 02/19/2020

    This IFPRI Policy Seminar held on February 19, 2020, at IFPRI Headquarters, featuring presentations from Eugenio Diaz-Bonilla, Head, Latin American and Caribbean Program, IFPRI; Ramiro Costa, Deputy Executive Director of the Buenos Aires Grain Exchange, Bolsa de Cereales; and David Laborde Debucquet, Senior Research Fellow, IFPRI; Sofia Perini, Economist, INAI Foundation (Institute for International Agricultural Negotiations), and moderated by Valeria Piñeiro, Senior Research Coordinator, IFPRI

    The 2030 Agenda calls on all countries to use trade to create a more sustainable, inclusive, and resilient world. We must ensure that the global trading system actively contributes to sustainability. Trade policies offer an opportunity to promote a broad shift in production and consumption that helps consumers to make better choices.

    The European Union-Mercosur (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay) free trade agreement, recently announced after 20 years of negotiations, has not yet been ratified. If ratified, it would represent the largest trade deal struck by both the EU and Mercosur bringing together 779 million people, 24 trillion dollars of GDP and covering 18 million of square kilometers. Representing a quarter of the global GDP and could also presage a redistribution of agricultural market shares in the EU, the world’s second largest agricultural import market, for US-based exporters.

    The agreement may serve as a model for future deals, making it critical to get this one right. This discussion will consider fundamental questions about “greening” of the EU-Mercosur agreement:

    • How will the agreement impact trade in goods?
    • How will it protect standards, including environmental standards?
    • Can it promote sustainable farming in both regions?
    • How will it contribute to the fight against climate change?
    • Will commitments on environmental protection be enforceable?

    IFPRI Policy Seminar: European Green Deal--Farm to Fork Strategy for Sustainable Food - 02/18/2020

    IFPRI Policy Seminar: European Green Deal--Farm to Fork Strategy for Sustainable Food - 02/18/2020

    This IFPRI Policy Seminar was held last Februrary 18, 2020 at IFPRI Headquarters, featuring keynote presentation from Tassos Haniotis, Director, European Commission with remarks from Johan Swinnen, Director General, IFPRI, and M. Ann Tutwiler, Chair, Bioversity International USA, Inc. and moderated by Will Martin, Senior Research Fellow, IFPRI

    The “Farm to Fork” Strategy, part of the European Commission’s Green Deal, is integral to Europe’s ambitious response to climate change challenges along the food chain. The “Farm to Fork” strategy reflects the ongoing transformation of food systems worldwide and the goal of making Europe’s food system the gold standard for sustainability. “Farm to Fork” is also linked directly to current discussions on the future of the Common Agricultural Policy.

    The EU experience is highly relevant to the debate around food system transformation—Europe’s policy- and private-driven initiatives demonstrate that green best practices can be successful in jointly increasing economic efficiency and environmental and climate sustainability. This seminar will review the “Farm to Fork” strategy and its implications for European and global agriculture.

    IFPRI Book Launch: The Making of a Blue Revolution in Bangladesh - 02/11/2020

    IFPRI Book Launch: The Making of a Blue Revolution in Bangladesh - 02/11/2020

    The Washington DC launch of The Making of a Blue Revolution in Bangladesh was held last Februrary 11, 2020 at IFPRI Headquarters, featuring presentations from Paul Dorosh, Director, Development Strategy and Governance Division, IFPRI; Nicholas Minot, Deputy Division Director, Markets, Trade, and Institutions Division, IFPRI; Shahidur Rashid, Director, South Asia, IFPRI; and Xiaobo Zhang, Senior Research Fellow, IFPRI, remarks from Loraine Ronchi, Practice Manager for South Asia, Food and Agriculture Global Practice, World Bank Group, and moderated by Rajul Pandya-Lorch, Director, Communications and Public Affairs & Chief of Staff, Director General's Office, IFPRI

    A rapid increase in aquaculture production in Bangladesh has lowered fish prices, increased protein consumption, and reduced poverty. The Making of a Blue Revolution in Bangladesh offers a valuable case study of how this transformation in the fish value chain has occurred and how it has improved the lives of both fish producers and fish consumers and considers the future potential of aquaculture in Bangladesh.

    PIM Webinar Series: Integrating Gender in Policy Research and Outreach - 02/06/2020

    PIM Webinar Series: Integrating Gender in Policy Research and Outreach - 02/06/2020

    This PIM Webinar recorded on February 6, 2020, features a presentation by and a discussion with Dr. Ruth Meinzen-Dick, Senior Research Fellow, IFPRI and Elizabeth Bryan, Senior Scientist, IFPRI.

    There is growing recognition of the importance of gender issues in policy and research. Gender equality is recognized as one of the Sustainable Development Goals and is key to achieving most of the other goals as well. Yet it is often not clear what this means, in practice, or what kinds of knowledge and interventions are needed to contribute to these goals.

    This webinar will discuss key gender issues and entry points for policy research and outreach, focusing on processes for integrating gender into each stage of the research process, including priority setting, research design, methodologies, conduct of research, and communications for impact. More: https://pim.cgiar.org/2020/01/30/webinar-integrating-gender-in-policy-research-and-outreach/

    The PIM Webinars aim to share findings of research undertaken as part of the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM), discuss their application, and get feedback and suggestions from participants. Webinars are conducted by PIM researchers in the form of research seminars. Each webinar is a live event consisting of a presentation (30 min) and a facilitated Q&A session (30 min). Recordings and presentations of the webinars are freely available on the PIM website: bit.ly/PIM-Webinars

    IFPRI PolSem: The changing challenges of hidden hunger - 02/03/2020

    IFPRI PolSem: The changing challenges of hidden hunger - 02/03/2020

    Current global challenges in malnutrition and other development goals call for integrated, multi-sectoral approaches focusing on the entire food system, leading to healthier and sustainable diets for all. Among these challenges is micronutrient deficiency, known as “hidden hunger.” Micronutrients—vitamins and minerals needed in only very small quantities but with huge impacts on human health and development—are a key component of healthy diets.

    With shifts in food access, eating habits, and climate, hidden hunger is an increasingly common serious health problem for billions of people globally, including in situations of food excess. Unfortunately, most food system approaches pay too little attention to micronutrients, and the global health and development community lacks a basic understanding of how food systems can contribute to the micronutrient quality of diets.

    IFPRI PolSem: Trade for Secure, Diverse and Sustainable Nutrition - 01/30/2020

    IFPRI PolSem: Trade for Secure, Diverse and Sustainable Nutrition - 01/30/2020

    The 2020 Global Forum for Food and Agriculture event “Food for All! Trade for Secure, Diverse and Sustainable Nutrition” brought together 16 Expert Panels hosted by policymakers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and stakeholders from civil society to discuss the role of international trade in achieving a healthy and sustainable food system. International trade has long helped reduce food insecurity by connecting food-scarce regions to more productive agricultural regions. To meet global goals, trade will also need to increase sustainability of food production and ensure more equitable access to scarce natural resources.

    In follow-up to the GFFA 2020, IFPRI is hosting a panel to discuss key topics around the role of trade in sustaining food security and nutrition in the face of current challenges to food systems, such as climate change, protectionist tendencies, and economic uncertainty. Panelists will reflect on the trade-related decisions that developing and emerging countries must make as they seek to increase agricultural productivity, improve the functioning of food supply chains, integrate trade rules and environmental controls, and address food loss and waste.
