As Ousmane Badiane leaves IFPRI at the end of February, please join us for this special event reflecting on his work for IFPRI and for Africa.

Ousmane’s contributions to transforming Africa’s agriculture sector are widely recognized throughout the development community.

As IFPRI’s Director for Africa, Ousmane significantly expanded IFPRI’s engagement in Africa and played a key role in developing and guiding the implementation of the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP)His accomplishments include helping to establish the Regional Strategic Analysis and Knowledge Support Systems (ReSAKSS), a major collaboration between CG centers and leading African organizations to support evidence-based policy efforts and launching and leading the African Growth and Development Policy Modeling Consortium (AGRODEP) with members from more than 30 countries. His latest initiative, the Malabo Montpellier Panel, encourages policy innovations for better development outcomes by bringing together leading global experts and decision makers. Ousmane has also initiated the Annual Trends and Outlook Report (ATOR) and the African Agriculture Trade Monitor (AATM), two of the most important annual publications on African agriculture.
