Precision Agriculture for Development (PAD) is humbled to share the news that our co-founder and board member, Michael Kremer, is a 2019 Nobel Laureate for Economic Sciences.
In announcing the award, the Nobel Committee stated that Michael Kremer and his co-laureates Esther Duflo and Abhijit Banerjee have “considerably improved our ability to fight global poverty. In just two decades, their new experiment-based approach has transformed development economics, which is now a flourishing field of research”.
Unsurprisingly, Michael has insisted that this is an award shared by everyone who works in evidence-based public policy and research.
At PAD we are privileged to work with Michael in harnessing the power of technology, data science and behavioural economics to provide targeted information to farmers in developing countries to improve their lives. Our collective work would not be possible without the support and collaboration of our partners.
