Abstract

The main focus of this study is on improving the policy regime in Africa to stimulate agricultural growth. It examines the state of agricultural incentives in Sub-Saharan Africa, taking stock of the current policy environment and its recent evolution, to update knowledge and to help develop a stronger consensus on the appropriate policies and incentives that will stimulate agricultural growth. The global environment is examined together with the macroeconomic, export crop, food crop, and fertilizer policies in 16 African countries.
