Increased investment in agricultural research and development (R&D) will lower food prices through increased food production. Lower food prices will, in turn, help the urban poor, as they often spend more than 60% of their income on food. Using China as a case, the study empirically estimated these effects. These effects are large, and are comparable to those on rural poverty.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
