, : Agricultural policy in sub-Saharan Africa: a focus on relatively 'successful' countries. Rural Development Studies ( 27): 55pp.

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.
