Professor Bina Agarwal, School of Environment, Education and Development (SEED) has been awarded the 2017 Agropolis Fondation Louis Malassis International Scientific Prize for her “outstanding career in agricultural development”. The bi-annual award is presented by the Agropolis Fondation to recognise individuals for their exemplary contributions to enhance food and agricultural systems sustainability, food security and poverty reduction.
Bina recently published a compendium of her work, Gender Challenges. The series brings together a selection of her groundbreaking works on agriculture, property rights and the environment. The essays, written over the last three decades, both challenge and illuminate standard economic assumptions from a gender perspective, as well as providing original insights on a wide range of theoretical, empirical, and policy issues of continuing importance in contemporary debates.
