November 13th and 14th 2019 marked a bittersweet moment for the Department of Agricultural Economics, Extension and Rural Development. Sweet because the two days were a celebration of the research done, the PhD students graduated, the capacity built and the policy implications made. Bitter because all of these accomplishments also marked the end of an eight-year journey with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). These two days brought together the staff, students and alumni of the Department, industry members, and government representatives, and esteemed guests from various embassies.
