The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Korea Rural Economics Institute (KREI) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to support collaboration between the two institutions. Collaboration under the MOU will focus on dealing with climate change impacts on regional food and water security in Korea and East Asia, using IFPRI’s International Model for Policy Analysis of Agricultural Commodities and Trade (IMPACT) and related research programs as key building blocks. The MOU, covering an initial period of three years, was signed by IFPRI Director-General Shenggen Fan and KREI President Sei-Kyun Choi on July 7, 2015 at IFPRI headquarters in Washington DC.
