  • Despite 70% increase in population in 30 years
  • When applicable International commodity prices are used, to calculate the total value of each commodity produced by each country and subsequently used in the ranking of commodities and countries. They are applied in order to avoid the use of exchange rates for obtaining continental and world aggregates, and also to improve and facilitate international comparative analysis of productivity at the national level.
  • CRP4 was submitted by IFPRI; proposal was prepared in close collaboration with ILRI, and with support from 10 other Centers and an extensive consultation process with a large number of partners from ag, health, nutr
  • A quick overview of where we are and some thoughts on where we should go- I would like to flag some key opportunities in terms our investments in research, establishing new partnerships and also some resource mobilizing opportunities.

    2. 2. World : At a cross roads of too little and too much  Annual world food production can provide 2720 Kilo cal. per day/per person to all  World agriculture produces 17% more calories than it did 30 years ago.
    3. 3. World : At a cross roads of too little and too much  Annual world food production can provide 2720 Kilo cal. per day/per person to all  World agriculture produces 17% more calories than it did 30 years ago.  100-140 million children Vitamin A deficient  30% world’s population anaemic  Iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) affect 740 million people Over fed and Under fed populations
    4. 4. Problem is beyond food production..  Quality of food (Nutrients enhanced, biofortified, safe)  Distribution and access  Adequate policies (focusing on, not just food but nutrition security)  Leveraging agriculture to address, - Protein-energy malnutrition - Micronutrient deficiencies
