Do One Better with Alberto Lidji: George Richards, director of Community Jameel, on J-PAL and advancing science and learning
Community Jameel’s director, George Richards, speaks to Alberto Lidji, the host of the 'Do one better!' podcast about the organisation's support of the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) and explains how Community Jameel supports scientists, humanitarians, technologists and creatives across the globe to understand and address pressing human challenges.
In 2019, the Nobel Prize for Economics was awarded to J-PAL’s co-founders, Esther Duflo and Abhijit Banerjee, and long-time J-PAL affiliate Michael Kremer, for their experimental approach to alleviating global poverty. Community Jameel has supported and partnered with J-PAL since 2005.
