Presentation

Agnes Andersson Djurfeldt is a Professor in Human Geography and team leader of the Afrint group, an interdisciplinary group of researchers engaging researchers from nine research institutions in Africa and the Departments of Human Geography, Statistics, Sociology and Economic History at Lund University. The group has collected data in four rounds from around 4000 households in sub-Saharan Africa to study changes in rural livelihoods from 2002 onwards.

She has taught at the masters level for a number of years, especially in the Lund University Master of International Development and Management, where she was the Director of studies for several years. At present she is involved in the course on Rural and Urban Livelihoods within the programme and also supervises masters and doctoral theses.

She is regularly involved in public events and stakeholder meetings related to food security, gender and agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa. 

Current research projects

At present Agnes Andersson Djurfeldt is the principal investigator of four projects funded by Sida, the Swedish Research Council and the UKAid/ESRC respectively. More information on these projects, which together constitute the third phase of Afrint can be found on the programme website. 

Agnes’ research interests focuses on rural based processes of transformation within and outside agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa involving changing rural and multi-spatial livelihoods, gender based access to productive resources within and outside agriculture, consumption and intra-household division of labor and income. She uses a mixed-methods approach combining the use of panel level data from the Afrint database, with qualitative field work at the individual, household and village level mainly in Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria and Zambia.
