Workshop on Agricultural Transformation in Africa: Abidjan, Côte D'Ivoire, September 26-29, 1995 AgEcon
Ba, Moussa Batchily; Staatz, John M.; Farrelly, Laura L.; Camara, Youssouf; Dimithe, Georges.
At the initiative of USAID, the ADB, MSU, and INSAH, 40 researchers, policy makers and private-sector entrepreneurs from 19 countries, representing 20 African and international organizations, met in Abidjan for a continent-wide workshop to debate issues related to transformation of African agriculture. The Abidjan workshop built on previous discussions organized by Winrock International, the World Bank, USAID (AFR/SD/PSGE/FSP) and IFPRI concerning the key challenges (food insecurity, poverty, and environmental degradation) that need to be addressed while fostering a structural transformation of African agriculture.

WORLD BANK PROJECT APPRAISAL AND AN EMERGENT DEVELOPMENT PERSPECTIVE: THE ITERATIVE/PARTICIPATORY APPROACH AgEcon
Zewde, Almaz.
This study aimed to investigate the strategic assumptions and practices in World Bank project appraisal programs. Semistructured interviews of senior World Bank field officers in Addis Ababa and Nirobi and extensive review of World Bank appraisal directives and related documents provided the data for the study. The purpose was to see the correspondence between Bank project appraisal methods, assumptions, and criteria and the iterative/participatory development model. The findings suggest that despite the Bank's awareness of the inherent value of the iterative/participatory development model and expressed interest in changing the direction of the Bank's development practices towards it, the project approach with appraisal emphasis on monetary and...

World Economic Crises in Times of Environmental Scarcity and Wealth Concentration AgEcon
Lopez, Ramon E..
Three new structural factors underlie the latest great world crisis: (1) the incorporation of highly populated countries into the growth process; (2) The increasing scarcity of the environment and certain natural resources; (3) the dramatic concentration of wealth and income in the advanced economies over the last two decades. These structural changes have significantly tightened the links between world growth and commodity demand, made the world commodity supply increasingly inelastic, and rendered economic growth more dependent on lax monetary and financial policies, respectively. All this may make the world economy highly vulnerable to crises and may make the recovery from the current crisis more difficult.

Would Freeing Up World Trade Reduce Poverty and Inequality? The Vexed Role of Agricultural Distortions AgEcon
Anderson, Kym; Cockburn, John; Martin, William J..
Trade policy reforms in recent decades have sharply reduced the distortions that were harming agriculture in developing countries, yet global trade in farm products continues to be far more distorted than trade in nonfarm goods. Those distortions reduce some forms of poverty and inequality but worsen others, so the net effects are unclear without empirical modeling. This paper summarizes a series of new economy-wide global and national empirical studies that focus on the net effects of the remaining distortions to world merchandise trade on poverty and inequality globally and in various developing countries. The global LINKAGE model results suggest that removing those remaining distortions would reduce international inequality, largely by boosting net farm...

You Can Pick Your Friends, But You Need to Watch Them: Loan Screening and Enforcement in a Referrals Field Experiment AgEcon
Bryan, Gharad; Karlan, Dean S.; Zinman, Jonathan.
We examine a randomized trial that allows separate identification of peer screening and enforcement of credit contracts. A South African microlender offered half its clients a bonus for referring a friend who repaid a loan. For the remaining clients, the bonus was conditional on loan approval. After approval, the repayment incentive was removed from half the referrers in the first group and added for half those in the second. We find large enforcement effects, a $12 (100 Rand) incentive reduced default by 10 percentage points from a base of 20%. In contrast, we find no evidence of screening.

ZUR WETTBEWERBSFAHIGKEIT DER WEISSSRUSSISCHEN MILCHWIRTSCHAFT: EINE ANWENDUNG DES PORTERSCHEN DIAMANTEN AgEcon
Hockmann, Heinrich; Ramanovich, Mikhail.
This Discussion Paper provides an analysis of competitiveness of the Belarus’ dairy sector based on international trade indicators. The ex-post analysis is extended by an ex-ante analysis in order to gain detailed insights into the sector’s future opportunities and challenges. Systematic access is established through relevant determinants with respect to Porter’s diamond. Ex-post analysis results indicate a strong position of Belarus in the international dairy trade although limited to homogenous products like milk powder and evaporated milk. Competitive disadvantages were revealed for highly processed dairy products. The ex-ante analysis through Porter’s diamond model reveals the necessary prerequisites for potentially successful future developments in...
