The Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD) advises USAID on agriculture and higher education issues pertinent to food insecurity in developing countries. The President appoints members, who primarily represent the academic community. BIFAD was established by Title XII of the Foreign Assistance Act. The Board and Title XII recognize the critical role of U.S. land-grant institutions in agricultural development, domestically and abroad, and support their representation in USAID development programs.
The BIFAD public meeting has been rescheduled and will now be held in the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington DC on January 30, 2014. If you have any questions, please contact the BIFAD Executive Director, Susan Owens, at email@example.com or 202-712-0218.
