Wageningen UR research awarded as best paper and invited to expert meeting at the first FAO-MUFN Workshop

The research on “Value Network Analysis for Development of the Malawian Legume Sector” was evaluated among the best paper submissions for the “First Mediterranean Conference on Food Supply and Distribution Systems in Urban Environments” that will be held at Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in Rome next July 6-7. The conference is part of the Meeting Urban Food Needs (MUFN) Program at FAO, a cross-cutting project whose aim is to support policy decisions by local government authorities to improve food systems in developing countries and those in transition.

As one of the selected best papers, co-authors Dr. Domenico Dentoni and MSc student Mr. Felix Krussmann will be present with a methodological paper titled “Value Network Analysis of Malawian Legume Systems: Implications for Institutional Entrepreneurship”. The paper introduces a quite novel and still underused method, namely Value Network Analysis (VNA), to the field of food and agriculture by using the case of Malawian legume systems as a practical example – building on our 2014 project experience in Malawi.
