Agricultural policy in sub-Saharan Africa: a focus on relatively 'successful' countries

Rural Development Studies ( 27): 55pp.

Agricultural policy in sub-Saharan Africa: a focus on relatively 'successful' countries

The study seeks to develop a sound understanding of agricultural policy in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) by taking an indepth look at the policies of countries in the region which have shown a long-term trend towards relative 'success' in agriculture. Several criteria for selection are established, supported by World Bank and FAO statistics. Five criteria are used: food production growth; agricultural production; dietary energy supply, absolute energy supply, and sustainability.
