Focus on International Agricultural Development
AAEA Members at 2016 Brandt Public Policy Forum on Capitol Hill
Agriculture policies and legislation passed in the United States have impacts that reach far beyond American farms and fields.
There is a strong investment being made here at home to assist developing countries and working with countries worldwide to achieve global economic development goals. But what, if any impact, does this have on our economy?
AAEA members will participate in the 2016 Brandt Public Policy Forum, an event organized by the Council on Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics (C-FARE); AAEA’s partner in government relations. The forum, “Reaping Returns from U.S. Investment in International Agricultural Development,” includes the following presentations from AAEA members:
- “U.S. Investments in Innovation: What are the Impacts Around the World?”
Timothy J. Dalton, Kansas State University
- “Economic Pathways Out of Food Insecurity: Options for Market and Policy Development”
Titus Awokuse, Michigan State University
- “Investing in Innovation to Raise Agricultural Productivity in Developing Countries”
Keith Fuglie, USDA Economic Research Service
The Forum is Wednesday, April 27, 2016, from 12:00 – 1:30 PM EDT, and is being held in Washington, D.C., in room 328A of the Russell Senate Office Building.
To contact any of the members prior to, or after the forum, please contact Jay Saunders in the AAEA Business Office.
