Explorative design for bacterial wilt management in potato production systems in Ethiopia

Project description
My research project is on explorative design for bacterial wilt management in potato production systems in the central highlands of Ethiopia. My research mainly focuses on the social and biophysical dimensions of bacterial wilt to develop an effective management strategy through a responsible innovation approach. I am hosted by the International Potato Center (CIP) and I am conducting my research in collaboration with farmers and other actors in the countrys potato production system.
