Spring 2023 Speaker Series

Rural Transformations

Some of the most promising advances in sustainable and equitable development are taking place in rural contexts, where a diversity of actors are striving to transform food systems, incorporate local knowledge, strengthen climate resilience, and widen participation in the development process. The Rural Transformations series features conversations with leading thinkers learning from the forefront of these efforts. Together, they will help us reimagine the possibilities and future of rural transformation.

Co-sponsored by Duke University’s Center for International Development.
