Hina Nazli, Ph. D.
Hina Nazli is a Ph.D. graduate from the Department of Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics, University of Guelph, and collaborator with GII on its research on the cotton-textile sectors in Pakistan. Her dissertation addresses the policy issues and economic impacts for Pakistan related to regulation and availability of genetically-modified Bt cotton, which has been adopted among its regional trade partners and competitors by both China and India. With support from GII/ISCE, during December 2008-March 2009 Hina undertook field research on the adoption attitudes and practices of small-farm cotton producers in two of Pakistan’s main cotton production regions and on the effects of adoption of Bt cotton on production costs, yields and farm income. She completed her dissertation in December 2010.
