Working Papers from African Economic Research Consortium

Abstract: A proposition that has enjoyed wide acceptance among those concerned with the design and the evaluation of the adjustment process in sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries is that the agricultrual sector is critical to a change in the structures of these economies. This proposition is on the basis that the structural features of the agricultural sector in these economies places the sector in a strategic position in any programme that aims at : arreting the decline of SSA economies in the short run; improving trade and payment balances; generating medium-term conomic growth; and engendering a long-term transformation of these economies.
