New Book, Millions Fed, Showcases Best Approaches to Fight Hunger

As heads of state gather in Rome next week for the World Summit on Food Security, a new book pulls together – for the first time – major successes in agricultural development that have brought millions of people out of hunger over the past 50 years. The book, Millions Fed: Proven Successes in Agricultural Development, was commissioned by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to determine what works in agriculture – what sorts of programs, policies, and investments have had a proven impact on… Continue

Impact of climate change on agriculture

Twenty five million more children will be malnourished in 2050 due to effects of climate change, according to a report by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). The report provides specific projections for the year 2050 on crop yield declines, food price increases, and decreased calorie availability due to climate change. It also compares the number of malnourished children in 2050 with and without climate change. Additionally, it projects the costs for overcoming these… Continue

Nutrition studies in the Lancet

Two studies on nutrition from the International Food Policy Research Institute have been published recently in the Lancet, a leading medical journal.

The first study finds that feeding very young children a high-energy, high-protein supplement leads to increased economic productivity in adulthood, especially for men. Boys who received the supplement in the first two years of life earned on average 46 percent higher wages as adults. This study is the first to present direct evidence… Continue

You are right, we had a chat in Dhaka. Moreover, I had visited IFPRI during my stay in Washington on a visit to the programmes on sustainable development week organised by the World Bank. Getting IFPRI mails.
Thanks and regards

Thanks Michael for inviting to become your friend. Of course we became friends when you came and met us at Grand Regency in Nairobi in 2005. Just want to let yopu know that our media association in Kenya, MESHA ( is growing stronger and stronger despite us having never gotten any donor funds to help run any activity. We now have our website where we do post science stories. I am looking for ways of ensuring the site becomes more useful with time. Are you still pursuing the training workshop in Nairobi on biotechnology? Please let me know.

Yes, I remember you. We met at the CGIAR conference in 2001. You participated in a lunch at Shangri La. It's good to hear from you after all that time. Were you at this science conference in Australia? I couldn't make it unfortunately.

Please let me know if you need information on anything. Also, please send any articles you've written based on our material (it's hard to know from here when something gets published in the Philippines...)

If you plan a visit to Washington, let me know.
