IFPRI at the African Association of Agricultural Economists conference

The African Association of Agricultural Economists holds its 6th annual conference this week in Abuja, Nigeria. Over the course of four days, economists from Africa and other regions of the world will gather to discuss the policy challenges facing African governments as they tackle demographic shifts, climate change, urbanization, and fostering “agri-preneurship.”

Throughout these discussions, IFPRI staff will be on the front lines, from organizing to participating in panels and sessions. The conference “provides a unique platform for IFPRI researchers to share policy relevant evidence that could influence decisions and policies in the agriculture sector and improve food and nutrition security in Africa,” said IFPRI Research Fellow Bedru Balana, a member of the organizing committee.
