Decisionmakers and policy analysts need solid evidence and timely informa­tion to develop and implement effective food policies. The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) develops and shares global public goods—including datasets, indicators, and indexes—as part of its mission to provide research-based policy solutions that sustainably reduce poverty and end hunger and malnutrition. This information can be used to gauge the impact of policy changes and the progress made on specific aspects of development.

IFPRI e-Atlas presents a variety of datasets generated by IFPRI researchers, including data on investments in agricultural research, public spending in agriculture, food pol­icy research capacity, and agricultural total factor productivity, as well as a hunger index at the country level. You can drill down to the country level and compare performance across multiple indicators.
