The World Bank


214 pages




A collaboration between the World Bank Institute and the World Bank's Agriculture and Rural Development Department, this volume assesses how agricultural innovation arises in sub-Saharan Africa, focusing on agribusiness; public policies; and value chains for food staples, high value products, and livestock. Country reports base on qualitative interviews with agribusiness representatives are presented for Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda and a synthesis chapter summarizes the main findings and links common themes and lessons learned.
