As the world faces a potentially catastrophic food crisis, driven in large part by climate change and geopolitical conflict, the researchers behind an innovative project called Ceres2030 helped global development donors identify effective responses to this crisis, how much they will cost, and how these interventions will affect the rest of a given country’s economy. Combining economic modelling, machine learning, and evidence-based analysis, Ceres2030 aimed to build a global roadmap to end hunger.

Carin Smaller, Jaron Porciello, and Hale Ann Tufan joined IISD’s Jessica Templeton to talk about the aims and insights arising from this project, which was a partnership among Cornell University, the International Food Policy Research Institute, and IISD.
