Dean Yang receives grant to study subsidies, savings programs in Mozambique image

Dean Yang received a grant from the University of Wisconsin and USAID to conduct field experiments in Mozambique.

His project, titled "Savings, Subsidies, and Sustainable Food Security in Mozambique: 2011 Post-Harvest Survey Supplement," will assess the impact of fertilizer subsidies and a matched savings program that may improve the longer-term impact of such subsidies. The experiment takes place in the context of a broader provision of fertilizer vouchers for farmers in Mozambique funded by the European Union and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
