Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy

A nonprofit organization

IATP is committed to increasing justice and equity in the world’s food and agriculture systems, both in the communities where we live and through the relationships that food systems create across the globe. We work to slow climate change through mitigating agricultural emissions and to strengthen food systems’ adaptive capacity in all dimensions: social, economic and environmental.

From our home base in Minnesota, IATP is always connecting the dots between what’s happening here in Minnesota and what’s unfolding around the world. Our starting point is on the land with farmers and farm workers.

From our beginning 35 years ago, IATP has analyzed the concentrated power that transnational agribusiness corporations exercise over the design of our food system, as well as over the unequal distribution of costs, benefits and risks.

IATP works to support a just transition away from corporate agribusiness dependency and towards more agroecological farming practices to protect people, the future of food and our planet

Mission: The Institute for Agriculture & Trade Policy (IATP) works locally and globally at the intersection of policy and practice to ensure fair and sustainable food, farm and trade systems. 

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

Values: IATP is guided by values of economic and racial justice, environmental sustainability and resilience, and strong democratic institutions.
