CARE Fellowship awardees equipped with relevant research skills to enhance agribusiness in Africa

On 2–6 June, IITA organized a workshop for the 20 successful fellows that qualified for the research grant for “Enhancing Capacity to Apply Research Evidence (CARE) in policy for youth engagement in agribusiness and rural economic activities in Africa,” funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

The workshop, attended by scholars from IFAD, identified priority countries (Benin Republic, Cameroon, DR Congo, Malawi, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, and Zambia) and provided an opportunity for supervisors and IITA scientists to review young scholars’ research proposals, and strengthen awardees’ research capabilities to deliver the expected outputs of their research projects on youth engagement in Africa based on the principles of qualitative research methods.
