UNU-WIDER at the 2023 Nordic Conference in Development Economics

UNU-WIDER researchers will take part in the Nordic Conference in Development Economics, NCDE 2023, organized by the University of Gothenburg. The event will take place 13-15 June in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The NCDE 2023 conference serves as a meeting point for development economists active in the Nordic countries, but is also targeted more generally to academic researchers in Europe and beyond with a special aim to provide an arena for junior scholars to present their work.

UNU-WIDER Research Fellow Kalle Hirvonen will present on the topic 'Do ultra-poor graduation programs promote resilience against droughts? Evidence from rural Ethiopia’. 

Research Associate Maria Jouste presents ‘Tax optimization of small and medium-sized enterprises in Uganda’ and Research Associate Rahul Lahoti shares insights on ‘Does it matter who you ask for time-use data?’

Data Developer Michael Kilumelume presents ‘Exploring horizontal FDI spillovers in South Africa’s manufacturing sector: A firm-level study’.

The presentations share insights and findings from our Domestic Revenue Mobilization programme, World Income Inequality Database (WIID), and Southern Africa – Towards Inclusive Economic Development (SA-TIED) programme.
