Abstract: The goal of this project was to support the development of the Agriculture and Health Research Platform (AHRP) during the period 2008-12. The Platform consists of an alliance of stakeholders from the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) and from the international health community, notably including the World Health Organization (WHO). IFPRI led the development of the Platform, with the funds provided under this grant. Key activities included network building, policy research on identified priorities, capacity strengthening and policy communications. The research agenda took account of the broader concerns of stakeholders and policymakers in the agricultural, nutrition, and health communities. Research was intended to focus on mitigating negative effects on agricultural activities while maximizing opportunities for agriculture to benefit health, and better health to benefit agriculture. Globally, the expected impact was: stronger, more effective and sustainable agricultural systems that promote health, and healthier farmers and consumers. Among the poor, the health benefits of agricultural research, programs, investments and policies will increase, and vice versa with regard to improving the benefits that accrue to agriculture from a healthier rural population. These anticipated impacts were to be achieved through the formation of new research collaborations between agriculture and health investigators, the development of methodological innovations, strategic communication of research findings, policy impact, and capacity strengthening at regional, national and subnational levels...
