Agriculture and Rural Development Projects

A key challenge for agriculture and rural development policy is managing the countryside, taking care of and preserving rural landscapes and maintaining the cultural heritage. In many countries the rural population is shrinking which makes it all the more difficult to ensure good access to quality public services. We conduct applied research helping national and international policy actors to understand the challenges faced by agricultural workers and rural communities. We provide advice on public policy interventions, conduct monitoring and evaluation. We support improvement of governance, administrative capacity building, inter-institutional cooperation and involvement of stakeholders. Finally, we conduct interdisciplinary research in closely related areas such as accessibility of public services and infrastructure as well as migration within and between countries.
