It includes journal articles, book chapters, monographs etc. • IFPRI Datasets In collaboration with institutions throughout the world, IFPRI is often involved in the collection of primary data and the compilation and processing of secondary data. The resulting datasets provide a wealth of information at the local (household and community), national, and global levels. IFPRI freely distributes as many of these datasets as possible and encourages their use in research and policy analysis. • CGIAR Research Program Publications Describe your collection for visitors to your site. • ReSAKSS-Asia Library This is a collection of literature, including research articles, working papers, policy documents, journal articles, donor reports, presentations and other publications, related to agriculture, food security and nutrition in Asia, curated by ReSAKSS-Asia Team
  4. 4. ReSAKSS • The Regional Strategic Analysis and Knowledge Support System (ReSAKSS) is an Africa-wide network of regional nodes supporting implementation of the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) . ReSAKSS offers high-quality analyses and knowledge products to improve policymaking, track progress, document success, and derive lessons for the implementation of the CAADP agenda and other agricultural and rural development policies and programs in Africa. • ReSAKSS is facilitated by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) in partnership with the Africa-based CGIAR centers, the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency (NPCA), the African Union Commission (AUC), and the Regional Economic Communities (RECs). The Africa-based CGIAR centers and the RECs include: International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) for ReSAKSS–WA; the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) for ReSAKSS–ECA; and the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) for ReSAKSS– SA. • Monitoring progress: Africa is composed of fifty-four countries, which can be divided into five geographic regions: Central, Eastern, Northern, Southern, and Western. • Map: Ressources & Publications: • AGRICULTURAL • NEWSFEEDS • DATA AND STATISTICS • RESEARCH AND PUBLICATIONS • COUNTRY PROFILES • ORGANIZATIONS AND INSTITUTIONS • POVERTY / HUNGER

  7. 7. Food Security Portal • The drastic rise in food prices over the past couple of years has raised serious concerns about food and nutrition security across the world. While a coordinated response is urgently needed at international and regional levels, the effectiveness of country level response is critical for responding to the crisis. Coherent action is needed to help vulnerable populations cope with the hikes in their food bills, to assist developing-country farmers to swiftly respond to the opportunity posed by the rising demand for their products, and to provide information for evidence based related macro-economic policies. Since the implications of high and volatile food prices have been radically different across countries and population groups, the appropriate policy responses, as well as their scale, prioritization, and sequencing, must be developed and adapted to country-specific needs and conditions. • The goal of the International Food Policy Research Institute’s “World Food Crisis” project is improved food security for the poor in developing countries in the current food crisis and increased resilience of their food systems against future crises. This project will support the draft June 2008 UN comprehensive framework for action on the global food crisis which focuses on meeting the immediate needs arising from the crisis as well as building resilience and contributing to longer-term global food security. • Commodities: Data Sets can be downloaded • Policy Analysis Tools This section presents information- and decision-support tools to strengthen the ability of policymakers, food policy experts, and researchers to respond quickly to dynamic developments in the world food system. • Data Dashboard This site contains over 40 indicators related to food security, commodity prices, economics, and human well-being. Much of this data is available for every country in the world and goes back over 50 years. We draw from public, authoritative data sources like the World Bank, the FAO, UNICEF, and others, as well as IFPRI's own data. • Blog • Food Security news
  8. 8. Food Security Portal http://www.foodsecurityportal.org/ • This site contains over 40 indicators related to food security, commodity prices, economics, and human well-being • The Food Security Portal team works to collect this information every month by visiting data providers' websites • Dataset: - Unemployment - Agricultural Land (% of total area) - Children Undernourished (%) - Consumer Price Index - External Debt (% of GNI) - Foreign Direct Investment (Current $US) - GDP (current $US) - Global Hunger Index - Global Inflation Dataset - National Poverty Rates (%) - Rice Exports - Population Density - World Oil Price - Etc.
  9. 9. ASTI • The Agricultural Science and Technology Indicators (ASTI) initiative, led by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), is a comprehensive and trusted source of information on agricultural research and development (R&D) systems across the developing world. • ASTI’s Objectives • To provide high-quality, up-to-date datasets on agricultural R&D • To conduct ongoing analysis of its agricultural R&D datasets • To communicate the results of its analysis to promote advocacy and support policymaking • To build national and regional capacity for both data collection and data analysis • ASTI DATA TOOLS: ASTI’s Data Tool provides access to download key data in ASTI’s database and offers various features through which to visualize and compare data either at a glance or in-depth. The tool comprises three display panels: MAP A SUBJECT, VIEW SNAPSHOT DATA, and PLOT TWO INDICATORS. • CGIAR CENTERS DATA Total spending, spending allocations (by region), funding trends, funding allocations, major donors, donor groups and staffing trends - for each CGIAR center • CGIAR DIIVA PROJECT The DIIVA (Diffusion and Impact of Improved Varieties in Africa) project collected data around a set of 154 crop- country combinations (CCCs) across 21 crops and 29 countries.
