IFPRI and the 2020 Initiative


2020 Vision for Food, Agriculture, and the Environment

IFPRI’s 2020 Vision is a world where every person has access to sufficient food to sustain a healthy and productive life, where malnutrition is absent, and where food originates from efficient, effective, and low-cost food systems that are compatible with sustainable use of natural resources.

The 2020 Vision Initiative has two primary objectives:

  1. > To develop and promote a shared vision and consensus for action for meeting food needs while reducing poverty and protecting the environment; and –
  2. > To generate information and encourage debate to influence action by national governments, nongovernmental organizations, the private sector, international development institutions, and other elements of civil society.

Hand Crank Films was commissioned by IFPRI to travel to Uganda and India to capture this story and create a video that successfully encourages the rest of the world to participate in this all important global initiative. This is that story.
