"Agricultural Development Policy: Concepts and Experiencesm," prepared under the aegis of the Policy Assistance Division of FAO, presents a fresh and comprehensive look at agricultural development policy. It provides a clear, systematic review of important classes of policy issues in developing countries and discusses the emerging international consensus on viable approaches to the issues. Topics covered include agriculture's role in economic development, objectives and instruments of agricultural policy, linkages between macroeconomic and agricultural policies, sectoral policies related to agricultural prices, the role of government in the sector, gender issues in agriculture, policies for the rural poor, land tenure policies, water management, agricultural finance policies, and agricultural technology development and dissemination. This book is suitable for use in university courses in agricultural and economic development, international development, natural resource management, and specialized topics in agriculture, and it serves as a valuable reference tool for policy makers and other professionals and researchers in the field of international agricultural development.
