Deliberate, purposive, mentoring takes time and effort. Through the process of collaborating with a mentee, a mentor shows a mentee the ‘ropes’ of the profession, helps to identify and cultivate the mentee’s strengths, and opens up networks and professional opportunities. To mentor is to commit time and effort. The benefits of mentoring—colleagues from diverse backgrounds staying in the profession and fully expressing their potential—are enjoyed by the entire profession. Nominations are due on February 9, 2022.

The editors of AEPP invite authors to submit abstracts for a special issue on COVID-19 in South Asia. Over the last two years aggregate economic growth in many South Asian countries has been badly hit, with COVID-19 exposing structural vulnerabilities and threatening to undo decades of progress in what was the fastest growing region in the world pre-pandemic. The unravelling of these economies has serious implications for rural livelihoods and food and nutrition security, raising key questions on the role of social protection and resilience of agri-food systems. This issue will focus on forward-looking policy-relevant applied work on these themes, outlining the impacts of the pandemic in the region and lessons learnt for similar shocks going forward.
The Tom Reardon Appreciation Club is the newest addition to the AAEA Trust.

Applied Economics Perspectives and Policy - Deadline extended
Submissions will be accepted for the special issue through February 15, 2022. We encourage submissions sooner to be able to help readers benefit from accepted submission. All articles will go through a double-blind peer review process and be available online via Advanced Access for readers once accepted.
Water Economics has been taught for many decades at undergraduate and graduate levels. Teaching approaches included the traditional profit/utility-maximizing agents' behavior (farmers, households) where individuals decide the allocation of a given amount of water among consuming activities. Main issues such as availability, allocation, pricing, investment, technology, and management of water resources have been at the forefront of the field of water economics. In recent decades, water resources worldwide have seen many transformations both locally and globally, making the challenges facing water-using agents much more complicated and, as a result, higher skills are needed for the tools and methods they employ.

Innovation is fundamental for ensuring societies are able to produce more, while requiring fewer inputs. Without innovation-driven productivity gains, the problems outlined by Malthus over 200 years ago would be more pronounced in modern societies. Innovations along supply chains are essential to meeting the needs of increasing populations, while simultaneously striving to ensure production is as sustainable as possible.
