Jobs Group, World Bank
Lead Agriculture Economist
I am lead agricultural economist in the World Bank’s Jobs Group, focused on the link between jobs, poverty, agriculture and urbanization in Africa and East Asia. In this, one of my endeavors is to help get the facts right, which led me a couple of years ago to initiate the multi-stakeholder project “Agriculture in Africa – Telling Myths from Facts” (http://www.worldbank.org/en/programs/africa-myths-and-facts#1). More recently I am also zooming in on the importance of secondary towns (as opposed to city development) for job creation and poverty reduction (http://blogs.worldbank.org/jobs/towns-not-cities-are-best-jobs-and-poverty-reduction).
