IFPRI conducts research to provide innovative, evidence-based policy solutions to enhance food security and fight poverty. One of its cutting-edge studies is the measuring of food loss and waste at all stages -- from production and post-production to processing, distribution and consumption -- in order to identify the origin and cost of food waste and loss at the local, regional and global level. IFPRI is currently working with the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions and Markets (PIM) to better understand the levels of investment required to effectively reduce post-harvest losses through infrastructure development and technology improvements combined with best practices.
