Independent Assessment of Options and Key Issues to Scale HarvestPlus

In the spring of 2016, Meridian was asked by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) Board of Trustees to conduct in-depth interviews with country partners, researchers, private-sector actors, donors, and other HarvestPlus stakeholders to solicit advice on the functions and factors that will be critical to success over the next 5- to 15-year period. ​Meridian conducted 34 not-for-attribution interviews with people in 17 countries over a seven-week period, synthesized the findings, and presented key themes and issues to the IFPRI Board of Trustees and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture's (CIAT) Board of Trustees.
