New Africa Section

AAEA has a new section started – the Africa Section.  We are holding our inaugural section organizing meeting on Sunday, July 26 in Sierra H at 11:30.  If you are working in Africa or has an interest in working in Africa, or working with people working in Africa and just want to learn more about doing research, teaching and outreach in Africa, come join us for conversations about how we can organize the Africa Section into a vibrant and exciting section in our Association.  If you have questions, please contact Vincent Amanor-Boadu at  I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of people and discovering some creative ways of enhancing scholarship in Africa and increasing the vibrancy of African agricultural and applied economics within AAEA.

  1. This is vert fantastic and heart warming. Thanks to immediate past president Barry Goodwin and others that worked relentlessly to see this fruitful. My first question when I attended AAEA Meeting for the first time in 2014 was Do we have an Africa Section as it is for other regions of the world. It was disappointing to hear NO as the answer. It was comforting three months after the meeting when Barry sent out to collect signatories for the commencement of the section. I shall joyfully attend the inaugural meeting today. Thanks to all others who had contributed to this.
