The Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP) and the Economic Policy Research Centre (EPRC) are hosting a special workshop to present and discuss the policy implications of the impact of agricultural technology on productivity and welfare in Uganda on February 9, 2017 in Kampala.


This workshop marks the first collaboration of its kind between the EPRC and PEP - an international organization linking researchers globally to enhance capacity for development policy analysis in developing countries – and has been organized as part of the STAARS initiative.
The Structural Transformation of African Agriculture and Rural Spaces (STAARS) initiative is a major African initiative aimed at promoting high quality research and capacity building for agricultural transformation as a key pathway to reducing poverty, and promoting inclusive growth and sustainable development in the region. Find out more about STAARS.


During the workshop, evidence from three studies looking at different facets of agricultural productivity, technology adoption and welfare in Uganda will be presented by the researchers who conducted these studies. There will also be the opportunity for an open discussion and a question and answer session following each presentation. The presentations will discuss evidence from research work conducted under the PEP-STAARS initiative - led with the scientific and technical support of Cornell University and PEP, and with the financial support of the IDRC - as well as from an EPRC-PASIC study.


The Policy Action for Sustainable Intensification of Cropping systems (PASIC) research project brings together four national and international partners, including the EPRC, to stimulate action in selected policies and programs, relevant for intensification of smallholder crop production systems.
As well as a significant capacity building activity, the workshop also provides the opportunity for the EPRC to develop key links to PEP, an important international research network in economic development policy.


The workshop will take place at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel, Kampala, Uganda, on Thursday, February 9, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. To attend the workshop, please contact Elizabeth Birabwa at ebirabwa@eprcug.org
