Agro-industrial transformation as a driver for employment generation, food security, and rural development in Africa Session organized by PARI at the Center for Development Research (ZEF) of the University of Bonn at the 6th African Conference of Agricultural Economists.
Agricultural stakeholders (farmers, researchers, practitioners, policy makers etc.) need to establish stronger linkages and share ideas and expertise to better tackle challenges impeding the growth of Africa’s agricultural sector. In this session, a panel consisting of researchers from ZEF and young agricultural economic scientists from around Africa will offer insights from their research. Each of them will bring their own priorities to the discussion, while demystifying some commonly held views in this area.
