How can information be harnessed to improve rural service delivery and governance? The articles in the new special issue of the journal World Development on “Information, Governance, and Rural Service Delivery,” coedited by Katrina Kosec (IFPRI) and Leonard Wantchekon (Princeton University), seek to answer this question.

In this seminar, speakers will give an overview of the special issue and discuss the importance of institutional contexts, types of information, and information transmission mechanisms in terms of improving rural well-being.

This event is co-organized by IFPRI and the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM). Unable to attend in person? Click here to watch online.
