How do we prioritize agrifood system policies and investments? Insights from the RIAPA modeling system.

Decisionmakers responsible for agrifood policy in developing countries face difficult choices every day. They must navigate a range of policy options with complex impacts while targeting multiple development goals in economic, welfare, and environmental domains. Not all policies are equally effective at achieving these goals, and often, there are trade-offs across different development outcomes.

The Rural Investment and Policy Analysis (RIAPA) modeling system helps navigate these complexities by assessing the impacts and trade-offs of policies and investments on agrifood systems, workers, and households. In this webinar, speakers will demonstrate how RIAPA has been used to identify priority agricultural value chains that most effectively contribute to development outcomes. They will also show how it supports policy design and public investment decisions to promote agricultural growth and development in the most cost-effective way.
