Nigeria Visiting Scholars Program
Feed the Future Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project launched its Visiting Scholars Program in 2016, with its first students being enrolled at MSU in the Fall. One of the goals of the program is to strengthen food security policy expertise in Nigeria. This USAID visiting scholars program initiative seeks to organize and institute direct training collaborations between researchers at MSU/IFPRI, and Nigerian scholars. Nigerian graduate students, their research advisors and MSU/IFPRI researchers constitute research teams to work on specific topics. Current topics include climate change impacts and the Nigerian poultry value chain.
