Biography

Nigel originally trained in natural sciences and agricultural extension. He switched into socioeconomics and has experience in diverse countries in Latin America, the Mediterranean Basin, Sub-Saharan Africa and South and South-east Asia. His teaching is mainly in marketing, business and knowledge management. Since 2004 he has supervised and jointly supervised 13 PhD students to completion.

His research interests are in agrifood systems organisation and performance, principally in developing economies, addressing issues of:

  • value chain approaches to agricultural market development and poverty reduction
  • marketing, information, communication and market coordination
  • management of natural resources and derived products
  • livelihoods, small business development, producer organisations and capacity building

 

This work uses institutional concepts in agricultural economics and supply chain management, and also draws on other disciplines.

Recent projects include research on development of the cassava value chain in Zambia, and the utilization of non-timber forest products by complex rural households in Burkina Faso, both with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization and diverse local stakeholders.

He is currently researching agrifood health and nutrition value chain linkages with the DFID-funded multi-institutional LANSA research programme in South Asia, covering Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan (http://www.lansasouthasia.org/), for which he is leading the Afghanistan Working Group.

He is a member of the Board of Directors, CATIE (Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza/Centre for Tropical Agricultural Research and Teaching), Costa Rica, a member of the Programmes Policy Group, TREE AID, and is Chairman of a small charity supporting schooling in Delhi, India (Wye and Brook India Trust, registered charity number 288217).
