Abstract

Reducing poverty in Africa remains the principal development challenge for donors and governments. Despite the considerable efforts and resources directed to reducing the numbers of the poor, poverty is still widespread and the development community has struggled to find the appropriate interventions which effectively target the poor. Recent developments in addressing poverty in the agricultural sector have been based on a deeper understanding of the nature of poverty and of gender related issues of poverty. Deeper analysis of the concept of poverty should enable better identification, and thereby targeting, of the poor; a more effective understanding of the needs of the poor; and better monitoring of the effects of programmes and policies on the poor.
