about this book

The changing pattern of international agricultural trade has profound implications for Africa. The book’s authors discuss these trade flows, map the corporate landscape of agro-food, (including the emergent indigenous sector), and assess trends in international development co-operation in the corporate sector. Particular focus is given to “aid for trade” programmes that try to foster private-sector development and trade-capacity building. A final chapter, drawing lessons from five country case studies (available at: www.oecd.org.dev/publications/businessfordevelopment), provides evidence of the (in)effectiveness of government intervention and donor programmes to promote the marketing of African agriculture.
