Crosby working in Nigeria

Brendan Crosby (MPA '14) is in Nigeria where he is currently working for the International Fertilizer Development Center on an agriculture subsidy project that utilizes technology to register eligible farmers. After the farmer registers, they can redeem a fertilizer subsidy which also gets captured digitally.

Brendan says, "It's a neat project and it seems to be working well!"

Listen to the Tech Tent story on BBC World Service about the project (skip to minute 11).
