I am pleased to announce the successful outcome of the proposal for a competitive grant bidded for in September 2023 by APRNet team under the mentorship of Prof. Anthony Onoja, APRNet President.
We have been informed that the APRNet team, with Dr (Mrs) Ebi Ansa as Principal Investigator and Dr Zelda Omasanuwa as Research Supervisor, both fishery experts (with Zelda in both fishery and economics) are going to conduct a survey on the theme:
Bridging the Data Gap for an Evidence-based National Fisheries and Aquaculture Policy (2024-2028). The grant is worth approximately 23, 000 US dollars.
The evidence they will generate from the field will be used to support the ongoin Review and Drafting of Fishery and Aquaculture Policy for Nigeria (2024-2028), which is being led by Prof. Anthony Onoja, President, Agricultural Policy Research Network.
Other young scholars in APRNet are going to be involved as enumerators in the project. The contract was signed by The APRNet President, IFPRI team and Dr Ebi Ansa last week.
Congratulations to the APRNet research team.
