I have been to Senegal to organize and participate to a round table at the University Assane Seck Ziguinchor and be a visiting researcher for one week there. Meetings and activities were already set together with Ibrahima Touré, Head of Sociology Department and Abdou Ka, a Postdoc research expert on food. I was also supposed to meet with institutions to consolidate data collection and meet family safety net grant beneficiaries for feedback. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic activities have been cancelled.
