Cereals demand in the Sahel and potential impacts of regional cereals protection

Cereals demand in the Sahel and potential impacts of regional cereals protection

World Development Oxford 21(1): 17-35

Recent policy debate in the Sahel has focused on a regional protection zone for cereals. This paper discusses cross-country evidence of consumption patterns and the sensitivity of these to policy variables, and considers potential income distribution and efficiency impacts of a rice tariff increase. A tariff would hurt the poor in the short term because the poor depend to a large extent on rice as a 'fast food', purchased from street vendors.
