Principal Trends and Debates in African Agricultural Development

Erik Green, Ellen Hillbom and Mattias Lindgren ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: While acknowledging both the limited information we have and the great variety of local systems of production as well as the impropriety of compressing them into one all-embracing story, our first aim in this paper is to comment on existing data and with it identify some very preliminary general trends. Our second aim is to review and present what we see as the principally most important debates in attempting to unravel factors affecting Africa‟s agricultural production and productivity.
