Promoting decent rural employment, by creating new jobs in rural areas and upgrading the existing ones, could be one of the most efficient pathways to reduce rural poverty. This paper systematically investigates the impact of decent rural employment on agricultural production efficiency in sub-Saharan African countries, taking Ethiopia and Tanzania as case countries. The analysis applies an output-oriented distance function approach with an estimation procedure that accounts for different technological, demographic, socio-economic, institutional and decent rural employment indicators.

Focusing on international issues as well as domestic concerns, this publication is a useful

Among the key problems, are the excessively high interest rates on loans; bankers' perceptions that the industry is prone to failure; the lack of understanding by farmers of the financial options available, and limited information about other commercially successful aquaculture enterprises in this area. The study argues

Annotation. Orijiako, who is not identified, examines the hypothesis that rather than promoting growth and development in sub-Saharan Africa, foreign aid interventions may have contributed in no small measure to the poor performance of the region's economies. Challenging conventional views that problems are technical details of delivery or administration, he suggests that an economy operating under appropriate circumstances and conditions may not require foreign aid to succeed, and presents historical records, common sense, and cognate experiments to bolster the view.

This book brings together new household and enterprise data from 41 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa to inform policy makers and practitioners on ways to expand women entrepreneurs’ economic opportunities.

Relative to men, women are pursuing lower opportunity activities, with their enterprises more likely to be smaller, informal, and in low value-added lines of business. The challenge in expanding opportunities is not

The Economics and Organization of Brazilian Agriculture: Recent Evolution and Productivity Gains presents insights on Brazilian agriculture and its impressive gains in productivity and international competitiveness, also providing insightful examples for global policymakers. In Brazil, as in many countries, many economists and policymakers believe that agriculture is a traditional, low-tech sector that crowds out the development of other economic sectors and the country. This book shows that this anti-agriculture bias is ill-informed, and with population growth, rising incomes, urbanization and
