Ceres2030: Sustainable Solutions to End Hunger
Our mission is to provide the donor community with a menu of policy options for directing their investments, backed by the best available evidence and economic models.
Ceres2030 brings together economic modelling, machine learning, and evidence-based synthesis into one initiative, helping fill a major knowledge gap in the field of agricultural and food policy. Ceres2030 connects this knowledge back to the donor community, making sure decision makers have the cost figures and evidence they need when deciding where and how to make their investments.
Funding support comes from Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF).
Check out our Ceres2030 launch SNAPSHOT. which summarizes the body of research developed by Ceres2030.
