Recap of IFPRI-NSSP 2012 Research Conference

NSSP RESEARCH CONFERENCE: Informing Nigeria's Agricultural Transformation Agenda with Policy Analysis and Research Evidence

Held November 13-14, 2012

NSSP's 2012 conference highlighted the results of the program's research over the two years which have passed since its National Stakeholders Forum in 2010. The conference was intended to bring together policymakers, researchers, development partners, and other stakeholders to dialogue on the policy implications of NSSP's research and to discuss future directions for agricultural policy research in Nigeria. The conference was organized into sessions around important policy themes, such as the rice economy in Nigeria, agricultural input policy, capacity building, and current challenges in food security and nutrition. Each session consisted of a number of paper presentations followed by discussions of the papers.
