Duke World Food Policy Center
Driving innovative food systems change
by bridging research, policy,
practice, and people
The food system isn’t working for everyone. Improved and expanded food policy aimed to address issues of global significance has the potential to improve the lives of countless people, help develop sensible plans for the future, and forestall or prevent catastrophic possibilities such as the world’s inability to feed itself.
Improving human and planetary health through:
Education: Cultivate the next generation of food policy thought leaders.
Research: Pursue “strategic science” to influence public discourse and improve policymaking.
Convening: Gather change agents to develop creative solutions to local, national and world food issues.
Policy Lab: Test policy and practice solutions.
Communications: Foster a bridge between research and practitioners.
