Description

The purpose of this book is to provide an overview of current thinking and findings about the relationship between agricultural investment and productivity in developing countries. This includes theoretical and methodological developments such as incorporating natural resource depletion in calculating measures of growth. It also underlines, through the concerns expressed by many authors about data scarcity and limitations, that neglect of information needs hampers the forward-looking assessment of sustainability of agricultural and rural development. The book also reviews findings about the linkages of investment and productivity in the context of other important factors such as land policy, debt, civil unrest and structural adjustment programmes. This places agricultural investment solidly as a crucial but integral component of an overall policy to promote agricultural productivity.
