The Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) is
a nonprofit research and education organization. Our mission is to create
environmentally and economically sustainable communities and regions through
sound agriculture and trade policy. The Institute assists public interest
organizations in effectively influencing both domestic and international
policymaking through the following activities:
- Monitoring, Analysis and Research. The Institute monitors the key
events and topics related to agriculture, environment, community economic
development and trade. This data is then analyzed to determine potential
economic and ecological implications. Policy options are researched and
presented in response to specific problems and opportunities.
- Education and Outreach. The Institute prepares educational
materials for distribution to policymakers, opinion leaders and the public at
large. This includes a mail order literature service, video productions, public
service announcement (PSA) campaigns, conferences and computer networks.
- Training and Technical Assistance. The Institute provides
training, consulting and technical assistance to groups interested in addressing
economic and ecological issues through seminars, staff and leadership trainings,
teleconferences, videos, on-site consultations and our system of computerized
- Coalition Building and International Networking. Concerned groups
are brought together in coalitions to increase coordination of activities in a
variety of issue areas. The Institute also works to build international networks
by linking groups in different countries through conferences, study tours,
publications, action campaigns and global electronic bulletin boards.
