MPEP Seminar Series #4     
Thomas Jayne, David Atwood, Jerome Wolgin
June 20, 2013     

This seminar featured Thomas Jayne of Michigan State University, David Atwood of USAID’s Bureau for Food Security, and Jerome Wolgin of USAID’s Bureau for Africa in a discussion moderated by Jeanne Downing of USAID’s Office of Microenterprise and Private Enterprise Promotion. The panelists addressed the big question: what will it take to transform African agriculture?

Reviewing current evidence, the panelists discussed reasons why Africa has not followed in the footsteps of Asia, what kinds of investments are needed for African agriculture to become more productive, market-oriented and profitable, and how donors can facilitate increased nonfarm jobs and enterprise opportunities.
