Feed the Future Policy Research Consortium is a multi-institutional Consortium led by Rutgers University (RU) and operates as an associate award of the USAID funded Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research on Sustainable Intensification (SIIL). This Consortium supports the achievements of the U.S. Government Global Food Security Strategy objectives through contributing to the improvement of policy approaches and outcomes. It also supports the learning agenda on policy, systems analysis, and implementation and assists the initiative to report on the success of its efforts. The aims of the Consortium are to develop a clearer understanding of contemporary agricultural and structural transformation, to develop and utilize specific set of indicators to quantify the impact or progress of key Global Food Security goals, and understand how agricultural and food policies help to enable and contribute to agricultural transformation."

The Policy Research Consortium is global due to the nature of the policy work, including country level programs and collaborators in Rwanda, Senegal, Nigeria and Malawi. It works to conduct a series of impact studies related to agricultural and food security policy. Formed in late 2014, the Consortium brings together leading experts in agricultural development policy and aspires to be a forum for independent and innovative research on policy analysis
