About this book

The need for agricultural research resources in the developing world cannot be underestimated, but the availability of such resources is often poor due to lack of funding and investment. In order for Africa and other such developing countries to achieve productivity in agriculture - vital to food security, poverty reduction and sustainable management of natural resources - investment and policy development needs to be assessed.

This book, a joint effort from IFPRI, ILRI and the Kellogg Foundation, explores the importance of impact assessment studies in Africa, and assembles important evidence to pave the way for further, much needed investment in agricultural research all over the developing world.

Contents

Challenges facing African agriculture; The role of impact assessment in evaluating agricultural investments in Eastern and Southern Africa; Specific topics of impact assessment include:; Wheat and maize research in Kenya; Sorgum, millet, groundnut and sunflower research in Zimbabwe; Cassava research in Uganda; Agricultural extension in Tanzania; The Sorghum and millet research improvement programme (SMIP); Maize research in Ethiopia; Impact of the Russian wheat aphid control programme, and wine grape and technology research in South Africa.
