August 16, 2023
Center-based Faculty member Pilar Useche (Food Resource and Economics) has been named Associate Editor of the top-ranked journal World Development. World Development is a multidisciplinary journal that "seeks to explore ways of improving standards of living, and the human condition generally, by examining potential solutions to problems such as: poverty, unemployment, malnutrition, disease, lack of shelter, environmental degradation, inadequate scientific and technological resources, trade and payments imbalances, international debt, gender and ethnic discrimination, militarism and civil conflict, and lack of popular participation in economic and political life."
The editorial board of World Development encompasses scholars from across the world. Its impact factor score was 6.678 in 2022-2023, having grown 26.5% from the previous year. Dr. Useche's appointment as Associate Editor positions the University of Florida and the Center for Latin American Studies as key figures at the forefront of the field of development studies worldwide.
Congratulations, Dr. Useche!
