Video Guest: Ousmane Badiane (Director for Africa, International Food Policy Research Institute)

In this week’s CTA Brussels video interview, Ousmane Badiane, Director for Africa at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) tells us more about the agricultural growth recovery and economic transformation in Africa. Badiane said that IFPRI is helping to create a critical mass of world class experts in economic modelling and a strong community of practice with the best tools, state of the art models, high quality data and all the necessary resources for training. He highlighted the key findings of the Regional Strategic Analysis and Knowledge Support System (ReSAAKS) which pulls together a network of experts from the countries in the region as well as from global centres of expertise to answer the needs in terms of technical analyses, data and tools that allows CAADEP  to have a vibrant and well informed review process for  benchmarking and mutual learning. Finally, he reminded that good policies may not be the solution for everything but bad policies are a problem for everything.
On the 2nd October 2013,  Ousmane Badiane held a presentation on “the successes in agriculture and structural transformation in Africa” as part of the Brussels Briefing on the ‘Drivers of success for agricultural transformation in Africa’ organized by CTA Brussels at the Borschette Congress Center in Brussels.
