WACCI Alumni Spotlight: Highlighting the achievements of our alumni: Dr. Edgar Traore

We are constantly amazed by our alumni and how much they’ve achieved since graduating from WACCI. We’re happy to bring you #WACCIAlumniSpotlight highlighting the achievements of our alumni.


Congratulations to our seventh Spotlight alumnus Dr Edgar Traore. He was funded by the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) for his PhD and received a follow up to further his research after graduation giving him a platform to raise other bigger resources.


Dr Traore graduated in 2014 and has since released 4 Rice varieties, authored 15 publications and he attracted funds worth $ 1.9 million from various donors to support his work.


We are proud of you! Keep up the good work!
