IATP envisions agriculture, trade and food systems that are good for people, farmers and food system workers, ecosystems and social justice globally.

What We Do

With our partners, we advocate for policy in the public interest at the state, federal and international level.

Our Approach

A Systems Perspective

IATP is built on the power of systems thinking. We organize our work into three core areas that are critical levers for systems change.

Working at All Policy Levels

IATP’s strong and passionate staff share their expertise at all levels, from the Minnesota Legislature to United Nation panels.

Values Rooted in Justice and Fairness

Our research and analysis are guided by values of economic and racial justice, environmental sustainability and resilience, and strong democratic institutions.

We have been transforming food and agriculture systems for 30+ years.

From launching Peace Coffee to engaging at WTO ministerials, we have rich, deep experience in the world of food and agriculture, trade and climate — and at their points of intersection. Read about our history
