DEGRP are delighted by the news that grant holders Professor Arjan Verschoor and Professor Ben d’Exelle of the University of East Anglia have been nominated for the ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize 2020.┬áThe annual prize recognises and celebrates the success of ESRC-funded researchers in achieving outstanding or societal impact from research.

The grant holders are recognised for their work on insuring previously ‘uninsurable’ farmers in Uganda, which began under a DEGRP-funded grant on agricultural investment in Uganda, lasting from 2012 to 2015. You can find out more about the lessons gleaned from their project here, as well their approach to stakeholder engagement here.
