COLLEGE STATION – Dr. Luis Ribera has been appointed to the Council on Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics.
Ribera is a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service economist and director of the Center for North American Studies at Texas A&M University in College Station.
Also known as C-FARE, the non-profit, non-partisan organization serves as a link between the agricultural and applied economics profession and the national policy making community. It relies on volunteer experts at federal agencies, universities and private industry, according to organizers.
“C-FARE is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the national presence of the agricultural economics profession,” said Dr. Spiro Stefanou, C-FARE board chair and department chair at the University of Florida department of food and resource economics.
“It is truly an honor to be appointed to the board,” Ribera said. “I look forward to working with fellow agricultural economists to continue the excellent work that C-FARE does tackling relevant agricultural and policy issues.”
C-FARE’s funding comes from academic departments, grants and contracts with the U.S. government, contributions to the Agriculture and Applied Economics Association Trust and AAEA, as well as the Southern Agricultural Economics Association. C-FARE has a long history of serving the profession and meeting key informational needs of our nation’s decision makers, according to the association.
