Sub-sector planning and poverty reduction

Sub-sector planning and poverty reduction

Strengthening the poor: what have we learned?: 209-219

To illustrate the usefulness of cogent sub-sectoral planning, 8 years of experience as head of the USAID mission in Pakistan in the 1970s are discussed. A series of plans related first to river management, subsequently to salinity control and reclamation in waterlogged areas, and later to on-farm water management are recalled. Other sub-sector strategies were pursued to bring together fertilizer supply and wheat pricing policies and to achieve a coordinated approach to agricultural research.
