In October 2014, DEGRP and Overseas Development Institute (ODI) gathered together researchers from the fields of economics, sociology and geography to speak at a panel event exploring how to raise agricultural productivity in sub-Saharan Africa. DEGRP is the Department for International Development - Economic and Social Research Council funded ‘Growth Research Programme’ (DEGRP)
This event summary report brings together discussion highlights from the event, incorporating both researcher viewpoints and topics addressed in the audience Q and A. It also provides contextual information on past and existing challenges to increased agricultural productivity, ending with post-event reflection in the form of a commentary from economist Professor Michael Lipton of the University of Sussex.
The project was funded by the Department for International Development - Economic and Social Research Council ‘Growth Research Programme’ (DEGRP)
