How can we help smallholder farmers seize opportunities in Africa?

Agriculture is at the heart of addressing poverty in Africa. I was reminded of that during my recent trip to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where different stakeholders had gathered to explore how to transform smallholder agriculture for growth. The recent End Poverty Day activities in Africa, which focused largely on agriculture, was also a reminder of how central the sector is to ending poverty and boosting prosperity.  Indeed, the different stakeholders I work with on a daily basis—which includes African governments, development partners, civil societies, the private sector and farmers—all agree: Agriculture is important to the future of Africa. read more

Prof. Gerald E Shively

Prof. Gerald Shively is the Associate Head of Department of Agricultural Economics, Purdue University. Working in collaboration with a worldwide network of students and colleagues, I conduct research on a wide range of topics related to poverty, economic development and the environment in developing regions of the world. My research has been funded by the National Science FoundationUSAID, the Ford Foundation, and The World Bank. Much of my research focuses on household land and labor allocation in marginally productive agricultural areas. I am keenly interested in nutrition and health, and methods to connect data on weather and climate, including remotely-sensed satellite data, to observational data on economic behaviors and outcomes on the ground. My goal is to help inform policies to make global food production more environmentally sustainable. I study the interactions between poverty and environmental degradation so as to help eliminate both. During the 2016/17 academic year I will be spending a portion of my time as a Faculty Fellow in the Purdue Policy Research Institute. He was honoured as a distinguished Honorary Fellow of AAAE in 2016, during the Association's 5th AAAE Conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Read more
