Dr. Patrick Hatzenbuehler, Associate Research Fellow at IFPRI-Abuja, presented a research seminar on “Macroeconomic Factor Influence on Agricultural Program Sustainability in Kaduna State, Nigeria” at the National Agricultural Extension and Research Liaison Service (NAERLS) at Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, Nigeria on December 12, 2017. The seminar was attended by twenty-two people (three females and nineteen males), including faculty members and graduate students in the ABU Department of Agricultural Economics, NAERLS staff, and NAERLS senior management. Helpful comments were received from Prof. Christogonus Daudu, Assistant Director of Research, Planning, Monitoring, and Evaluation at NAERLS, and Prof. Zakari Abdulsalam, Professor of Agricultural Economics at ABU, among others.
This seminar continues an ongoing tradition of support and collaboration between NAERLS/ABU and IFPRI-Abuja to produce research that helps achieve the goals of greater agricultural development, sustainable poverty reduction, and ending hunger and malnutrition in Nigeria. This dissemination activity is also one of the outputs of the Feed the Future Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project, a joint effort between IFPRI-NSSP and Michigan State University, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID/Nigeria).
