Please join us below Monday June 8, 2015 from 12:15 PM to 1:45 PM (EDT) for an IFPRI seminar presenting findings of food and nutrition security research projects in Africa south of the Sahara (SSA) funded by German federal ministries.

The presentations will highlight results of the projects, share success stories of food value chains, and outline key policies required to achieve food and nutrition security through the value chain approach. Stefan Sieber will present an overview of German research programs and related projects conducted in SSA. Khamaldin Mutabazi and Ephraim Nkonya will present empirical evidence of both success stories and challenges of the value chain approach in Tanzania, and discuss policies that enhance or pose challenges for market development in SSA.
