Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Markets, Risk & Resilience

Technical Advisory Group

The Technical Advisory Group provides advice and peer review services for the 
consideration of the Partnership Council.

Professionals are invited to the Group based on technical expertise in agricultural or rural 
statistics, including survey methodologies, data management and data analysis.

At least half of Group members come from academic institutions, such as universities and 
research institutes, and at least one member is a gender expert because improving 
gender-relevant data in agriculture is an important objective of 50x2030.
