BIOFORTIFICATION PRIORITY INDEX
HarvestPlus is leading a global movement to enable, empower, and encourage others to scale up biofortification.
To assist in this endeavor, HarvestPlus developed the Biofortification Priority Index (BPI) tool, which ranks 128 low- and middle-income countries according to their impact potential for investment in each of the 13 biofortified staple food crops.
It is a one-stop-shop for anyone interested in investing in biofortification.
