About Prof Nicholas Nwanyek Ngepah

My core research interest and expertise are in poverty, inequality and inclusive growth, but also extends to associated policy measures relating to international trade, regional integration, health, industrialisation, economic governance and state fragility, agriculture, energy, climate change, labour market and gender issues. I have recently taken a strong interest in digital inclusion and human development.
