Agricultural Supply Chains, Growth and Poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa

January 2, 2017

Researchers from a DEGRP-funded project on agricultural supply chains in sub-Saharan Africa have just released a book based on their research findings: Agricultural supply chains, growth and poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Part of Springer’s Advances in African Economic, Social and Political Development book series, the book investigates if and how agricultural market structures and farm constraints affect the development of dynamic food and cash crop sectors, and whether these sectors can contribute to economic transformation and poverty reduction in Africa.

Looking at six African countries, it investigates crop supply chains; develops new analytical tools for assessing the poverty effects of value chains; and examines the constraints faced by poor households engaged in commercial farming.

The book is available to order in hard copy and as an e-book via the Springer website.
