The effects of economic policies on African agriculture

World Bank Discussion Papers ( 147): xiii + 69pp.
The effects of economic policies on African agriculture
This paper uses newly compiled data and a wide range of empirical analyses to assess the impact of government policies on agricultural exports and food production over the past two decades and across most sub-Saharan African countries. While direct government control of marketing and prices of export crops has discouraged exports, disincentives created indirectly by overvalued currencies have been more damaging to agricultural supply in sub-Saharan Africa than in other regions.
