The Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD) will convene a public meeting seeking to better understand the concept of structural transformation, how raising the total productivity of resources in agriculture stimulates this transformation, and how this, in turn, contributes to countries’ progression toward self-reliance. The meeting will hear from experts on some emerging success stories in agricultural and structural transformation, distill lessons and identify knowledge gaps from these experiences, and identify implications of this evidence for USAID’s priorities for development and social safety net programming investments for agriculture and food security.
You can engage with this event in person or online.
A public comment period will take place at 3:15 pm ET.
