Mulangu is a co-author—along with Guido Porto of the Universidad Nacional de La Plata and Nicolas Depetris Chauvin—of “Agricultural Prices, Household Wellbeing and Poverty Alleviation: The Role of Agricultural Supply Chains and Household Constraints in ECOWAS Countries.” The well-attended conference was hosted by the Ethiopian Economics Association. Keynote speakers included Justin Lin, Chris Udry, and Manuel Arellano. The ACET team was led by Mina Baliamoune.
