What makes governments invest in different kinds of agricultural development? Responses from delegates at our March conference on the Political Economy of Agricultural Policy in Africa are featured in an article by the New Agriculturist magazine.
The delegates addressed the following questions:
- Why have African governments not met the 2003 Maputo Declaration of investing 10 per cent budgetary allocation in agriculture?
- What role can and should donors play?
- What role for civil society organisations?
- Directions for policy and investment
You can read their answers in full on the New Agriculturist website.
