CIIFAD maintains five important programs that support interaction between Cornell students and faculty and the broader community of international agricultural development. For complete information about each, click on a tab below.
The Food, Agriculture and Nutrition Group (FANG) promotes interdisciplinary research, teaching and outreach focused on the development of food systems that support human health and well-being sustainably. The group is a collaboration between CIIFAD and the Program in International Nutrition, and the membership is comprised of graduate students and faculty members from a range of disciplines. FANG's approach is to consider food systems holistically with human nutrition and environmental and human health as explicit outcomes. Faculty, staff and students who wish to join the group are welcome.

REFWORKS ACCOUNT: A FANG RefWorks account has been created as a common space where FANG-related references can be amassed and shared. Using RefWorks, FANG members can add ag-nutrition references to the database, and can access citations and abstracts of articles FANG members have found. The citations from RefWorks can be exported into Endnote, BibTex, or other citation software, and in many cases access the full text articles with one click. See instructions on how to access and use the FANG RefWorks account (NOTE: Only current members of the Cornell community can access the RefWorks account.)
