Agriculture and food policy is a critical development tool that can help direct agricultural transformation to best suit country needs and goals. On June 7, Agrilinks will host a special 30-minute Ask the Expert Chat for an online discussion and live audio Q&A on using policy to facilitate or even catalyze agricultural transformation.
Hosted in conjunction with the organizers of the 22nd Conference on the Global Bioeconomy: Disruptive Innovations, Value Chains, and Rural Development, this discussion will address questions such as:
- Is policy change the key to improved staple crop productivity in sub-Saharan Africa?
- How can policy affect income change, food security, employment, and nutritional outcomes? (Spoiler alert: the answer will include evidence from Senegal and Rwanda)
- How can we generate the political will in partner countries to drive climate-smart agricultural transformation?
This event is part of Agrilinks’ food security policy month this June, and will preview results to be presented June 12 at the Global Bioeconomy conference.
