Research to Support a New Framework for
Sustained Economic Growth of Pakistan


In July 2011, with the support of the Planning Commission, the International food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), in collaboration with Innovative Development Strategies (Pvt.) Ltd, launched PSSP, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and guided by a National Advisory Committee chaired by Dr. Nadeem Ul Haque. The PSSP agenda overall supports the Framework for Economic Growth with a particular focus on agriculture and the rural economy. It addressed policies designed to increase agricultural productivity and sustainability, create more competitive agricultural input and output markets, and accelerate income growth, food security and poverty reduction taking into account intra-household, inter-sectorial, inter-regional and inter-temporal growth dynamics.
