    Abstract

    The extremely severe droughts which have hit Africa in recent years appear to have impacted negatively on its development much more seriously than droughts in other regions of the developing world. Such droughts, it appears, both acted as a trigger to the adoption of structural reforms in some countries and aggravated the initial adverse effects (including environmental effects) of such reforms. The policy implication of the latter finding is that the reform requirement for drought-prone countries needs to be more flexible to climatic conditions, and that in some countries reform of land tenure population policy and research and extension policy need to accompany reform of trade and pricing policies.
