The initiative Ceres2030 launched by Cornell University, IISD and IFPRI aims to critically evaluate benefits, costs and trade-offs of agricultural interventions in order to achieve a global consensus on what it will cost to end hunger sustainably and on what the most effective ways to do so are.

A new initiative named Ceres2030 was launched at the annual global meeting of the Committee on World Food Security at United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) headquarters in Rome, Italy, on 16th October 2018 by Cornell University/USA, the International Institute of Sustainable Development (IISD) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI).

It is supported by a three-year, USD 3.1 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
Ceres 2030 is dedicated to the question how we can use the data we have now to support access to a nutritious diet for the more than 820 million people who face food insecurity, while staying within our planet’s environmental limits, and what the costs of these solutions are.

The researchers aim to map the fullest possible range of knowledge in agricultural research, establish protocols for systematic review, create a risk-of-bias tool, and then drill down to find the most powerful interventions that can help end hunger.
