ARD-DEC Seminar Series

ARD DEC Epublish banner

This seminar series—jointly sponsored by the Agriculture and Rural Development Department (ARD) and the Rural Development Team in the Development Research Group (DECRG) aims to provide a forum for discussing issues of wide interest and importance to the policy and practice of rural development.

The series will focus on important policy questions where research can shed light and will feature speakers who have a deep knowledge of the issue at hand and can offer a presentation that is both accessible and illuminating.

We expect the series to be organized as a monthly event.
