The interim report of the 2020 conference, undertaken by Robert Paarlberg, is now available! The report examines the short-term impacts of event on the conferees themselves as well as on the visibility of agriculture/nutrition/health issues in the media and in popular and professional discourse. Many conference participants contributed their opinions through online questionnaires and interviews, for which we are very grateful. The review also explores potential long-term effects, driven by post-conference activities of conference participants and use of materials generated by the conference.
This report is part of an externally managed and conducted impact assessment prepared for IFPRI. Look out for the final report to be released in November 2012!
