Keith Shepherd is a Principal Scientist at the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) in Nairobi and leads the Centre’s Science Domain on Land Health Decisions. . Keith has 40 years’ experience in agricultural research and development in Africa and Asia.
‘Decision-makers should be selecting interventions that optimise outcomes across the whole set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This requires economic models that project long-term costs, benefits and risks of intervention options. There is also a need to assess trade-offs and returns to investment and this requires expressing the relative value of different aims in monetary terms.’
