Whereas there is plenty of work looking at macroeconomic effect of public spending on growth and poverty in Africa as well as studies of the impact of spending or investment in one economic sector on outcomes in that sector or on broader welfare measures, this book fills a much needed gap in the research looking how the composition of public spending affects key development outcomes in the region.

The book brings together recent analysis on the trends in, and returns to, public spending for agricultural growth and rural development in Africa. Case studies of selected African countries provide insights on the contributions of different types of public expenditures for poverty, growth and welfare outcomes, as well as insights into the constraints in gaining development mileage from investments in the agricultural sector.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Public Expenditures for Agricultural and Rural Development in Africa provides in-depth analysis of the effects of public investment in rural Africa. Examinations of several countries using sophisticated statistical procedures compare the benefits of different types of government spending, contributing much insight into a neglected subfield of economic development." - Kevin Sylwester, Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, USA
