Research Mobilization and Management of Research and Policy
With support from a variety of funding sources, the INF mobilizes, manages, and conducts research on key issues in food and nutrition in collaboration with scientists and institutions in developing countries.
INF achieves this through a high-profile advisory service for formulation of national nutrition policy as well as research activities on global cereal fortification, including biofortified maize for developing countries. All projects comply with INF’s goal of enhancing local problem-solving capabilities.
INF brings nutrition issues to the attention of key policy makers through active participation in the Sub Committee on Nutrition (Working Group on Capacity Development and Micronutrients), publishing state-of-the-art policy analyses in the FNB, and organizing special sessions and symposia at key international meetings focusing on issues related to capacity development as well as select research issues
