Also on the second day of the conference, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, together with the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and Cornell University and the governments of Ghana and Kenya, launched the project Ceres2030.
Within this partnership, the project combines state-of-the-art modelling techniques with research mining of expert evidence to build consensus for the donor community on the best way to end hunger sustainably, with costs and effective solutions. With the recognition that a one-size-fits-all approach will not solve the complex problems at hand, Ceres2030 will evaluate the benefits, costs and trade-offs of agricultural interventions to ensure effective action.
The project’s proactive engagement strategy with policy-makers and the scientific and donor communities is another example of how experts are working together to build bridges between disciplines, people, and territories to work towards food security for all, leaving no one behind.
