PhD start-up seminar: Two PhD projects within SCOPA (Sustainable Cotton Production in Africa)

Michael Raphael Baha and Dossou Ghislain Boris Aihounton will present their PhD projects at a joint PhD start-up seminar.

Their PhDs are part of the SCOPA project (Sustainable Cotton Production in Africa: Organic Cotton for Employment, Growth and Environment?) which assesses and compares the sustainability of different conventional and organic cotton production systems in Benin and Tanzania.

Michael's and Ghislain's PhD projects will focus on economic sustainability, or competitiveness, both at the farm level and along the value chain as well as on the integration of environmental, economic, and social sustainability indicators.
