Agricultural supply chains, growth and poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa
Project lead: Nicolas Depetris Chauvin, African Centre for Economic Transformation
Start date: 25 April 2012
End date: 24 April 2015
In Africa, the agriculture sector has failed to become an engine of growth and economic transformation for most countries in the continent. Part of the problem lies in the market structures and in the poor institutions, policies, and infrastructure serving the agriculture sector.
This research investigated 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.
