Global Food and Nutrition Security

Research for better food systems, better health, and a better planet

We contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to reduce global poverty and improve global nutritional security through improved agricultural productivity, diversification, food system efficiency and resilience.

We maximise opportunities for the Australian agriculture and food sectors in a changing global food system, with a particular emphasis on the export of technologies and expertise.

We achieve this by:

  • Delivering research to improve agricultural productivity and profitability of smallholder agricultural systems
  • Engaging in partnerships with global agribusiness and contributing our expertise into the global food system
  • Contributing to key international research for development and policy platforms that underpin sustainable agricultural systems and facilitate adaption to global change
