What we aim to solve

The corporate global model of intensive, export oriented agriculture, has led to the loss of family farms, environmental destruction, and unsafe food being sold around the world.

IATP Programs Overview

CLIMATE & RURAL DEVELOPMENT
The climate crisis is deeply affecting farmers, rural communities and our food system. IATP has worked intensively over the last decade at the intersection of climate and agriculture policy. We are advocating for a policy framework that supports farmers and rural communities in a just transition toward climate-resilient, regenerative agriculture systems that effectively respond to the climate crisis.

TRADE & GLOBAL GOVERNANCE
IATP’s long-term goal is to transform the negotiation and implementation of trade deals to make them more democratic and transparent, while supporting family farmers, rural communities and strong action to protect the planet. IATP works closely with U.S. and international partners to oppose the expansion of harmful trade deals, while advancing alternative, fair trade policies.

COMMUNITY FOOD SYSTEMS
IATP seeks to build vibrant community-based food systems that give all people access to sufficient, safe, culturally appropriate and nutritious food while also developing local food supply chains that allow small to mid-scale farmers to access a variety of new markets. Through this program IATP is helping revitalize local economies, give farmers stable and predictable income through the buying power of institutions, like school districts and hospitals, and get fresh and healthy local food to students and communities.

INDUSTRIAL LIVESTOCK
IATP continues to build on our decades-long history of fighting against the harms of the exploitive factory farm system. Large-scale, industrial animal agriculture systems are causing enormous harm to independent family farmers and workers, rural communities, our water and air, and our health. We work in coalition with partners to hold the industrial livestock sector accountable to climate, food safety and human rights standards.
