"Unleashing the potential of Egyptian farmers: key opportunities and policy options"
Opportunities for improving agriculture in Egypt are generally well known. These opportunities include increasing water use efficiency and soil quality; improving input and output marketing; and linking farmers to knowledge and technology. However, there are many different types of farmers and farm households in Egypt and their specific constraints and needs are likely to differ significantly depending on key characteristics: small and large farmers; farm households with high versus low dependency on agricultural incomes; farms with production focused on staple crops or with a focus on high value/cash crops; farms in Lower versus Upper Egypt; among many others.
IFPRI, in collaboration with the International Center for Agriculture Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) is pleased to invite you to this seminar, with the objective of gaining a more systematic understanding of the diverse farm household characteristics and the key constraints associated with each type of farm household in Egypt. The seminar will also discuss ongoing policy efforts as well as evidence-based options for unleashing the potential of farmers to increase their incomes and to improve food security.
