Background Paper for African Transformation Report 2016: Transforming Africa’s Agriculture

Agricultural productivity in Africa is about one third of comparable Asian small holder farmers. Many factors affect agriculture productivity and these differ by product and by country. In an attempt to find lasting solutions to help remedy the low productivity and kickstart the transformation of the agricultural sector, this joint collaborative research between JICA and ACET aims at providing practical policy recommendations for transforming African economies. This joint research commissioned six studies to produce an overall review to feed into the chapters of the “African Transformation Report 2016 (ATR 2016)”by ACET.
