The NBER will host Transforming Rural Africa on Feb. 28 – Mar. 1, 2019 in Cambridge, MA. The deadline for proposals is Nov. 1, 2018.

The conference will bring together researchers who offer a range of perspectives on the structural transformation underway in rural Africa, and will especially emphasize micro-scale evidence from households and firms. Suitable research topics include, but are not limited to, electrification, raising agricultural productivity, industrialization, increasing transportation infrastructure and regional connectedness, gender inequality, rural access to finance and factors that influence the quality of life for African people.
