NIGERIAN AGRICULTURAL POLICY RESEARCH THEMES AND FOCUS POST-COVID19
Suddenly everything is changing globally. The way we live and work, our social and community relations, etc. The advent of COVID-19 took everybody unawares. The numbers are still counting and we don’t have idea how and when all this will end. We in the developing world, especially in sub-Sahara Africa, are still grappling with the impacts of climate change, economic crisis of over a decade ago, unstable political systems, rising poverty and unemployment, high levels of food insecurity and now COVID-19 with its attendant impacts and a new lexicon, health insecurity. The world is also facing a crushing economy due to crashed crude prices. In the face of all this, how is our research culture towards policy reforms and interventions going to be shaped post-COVID19. Given the critical nature of the place of research in ensuring rising productivity, reduction in income fluctuations, reduction in poverty, etc., the NAAE in collaboration with Michigan State University is happy to invite you to an online discussion forum on shaping our research culture post-COVID19. The speakers for this are Prof. Saweda Liverpool-Tasie of the Michigan State University and Prof. A. M. Shittu of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.
