Agriculture for development: new paradigm and options for success

Alain de Janvry ()

Agricultural Economics, 2010, vol. 41, issue s1, 17-36

Abstract: The role of agriculture as an instrument for industrialization had been rigorously conceptualized in the 1960s and 1970s under the classical paradigm of development economics. After many implementation failures under import substitution industrialization policies and protracted neglect of agriculture under the policies of the Washington Consensus that followed the debt crisis, agriculture has gradually returned in the development agenda, especially with the food crisis. We argue in this article that a new paradigm has started to emerge as to how to use agriculture for development, pursuing a broadened development agenda. We explore the specifications of this paradigm and discuss conditions for successful implementation. Copyright (c) 2010 International Association of Agricultural Economists.
