EMEA and EMNES launch a new series of research debate webinars
October 11, 2021
The Euro-Mediterranean Economists Association (EMEA) announced a new research debate series in collaboration with the Euro-Mediterranean Network for Economic Studies (EMNES). The series will present new studies and topics of research by EMEA, EMNES researchers and partners for discussion and debate.
The first webinar in the series “Agriculture and Trade: Can Africa exploit the untapped economic potential of sustainable food systems?” will take on Wednesday 13 October 2021 from 15:00 to 16:00 CET on Zoom.
The webinar will present the results of the fourth Africa Agricultural Trade Monitor (AATM), the annual flagship publication of the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and AKADEMIYA2063. The AATM provides an overview of trade in agriculture in Africa, including analysis of short- and long-term trends, and drivers behind Africa’s global trade, intra-African trade, and trade within Africa’s regional economic communities (RECs).
In this EMEA – EMNES webinar, researchers and experts will discuss whether the African trade and agriculture sectors can face challenges, seize opportunities, and pave the way towards sustainability and resilience.
EMEA coordinates the EU-funded Euro-Mediterranean Network for Economic Studies (EMNES).
