Our fourth webinar in the 2017 series posed some very important questions: How much do governments invest in agriculture? Are these expenditures worth it? And what are the reasons for under-investment? We thank Tewodaj Mogues (IFPRI) for the excellent presentation and all live participants for attention and very interesting discussion.
