IFDC Strategic Plan – A Message from
IFDC President and CEO
For more than 40 years, IFDC has helped millions of farmers produce and sell more food through our fertilizer technology research and agricultural market development. With the global population rising to nearly 10 billion by 2050, our work is more important now than ever before.
As global issues evolve, IFDC is adjusting its strategy to ensure we are meeting the needs of our staff, partners, donors, the private sector, and the farmers and agribusinesses we serve. In 2016, we began reevaluating our priorities going forward. Through discussion sessions and surveys, ideas from more than 1,000 stakeholders were gathered and analyzed.
As a result of these sessions, this document, considered Phase 1 of the strategy, outlines three initiatives that are critical to IFDC’s mission and future and emphasizes the institution’s continued core focus in soil and fertilizer research and development. Phase 2 will provide a roadmap with deliverables and a timeframe for implementation of the three strategic areas.
We are pleased to present IFDC’s strategic plan for 2017-2021.
