The Cornell Food and Nutrition Policy Program (CFNPP), created in 1988 within the Division of Nutritional Sciences, conducts applied research and engages in technical cooperation and training on issues of poverty, human resource development, and food and nutrition policy in, developing countries and in transition economies of Eastern Europe.

We are concerned with how the pattern and structure of growth, as mediated by economic policies, affect poverty, health, and nutrition. We seek to strengthen the capability of institutions and individuals in developing countries to generate and utilize such knowledge and information.

To achieve this goal, CFNPP undertakes research on the effects of government policies on the microeconomy and its subsequent effects on the poor. In addition, research focuses on the functioning of market and the behavior of various agents, including enterprises, households and individuals, in order to understand how policy change affects welfare and living standards.
