Growth and structural change in East Africa : domestic policies, agricultural performance and World Bank assistance, 1963-1986

A comparative overview will be presented of domestic policies (macroeconomic and agricultural) in Kenya, Malawi and Tanzania and their influence on the extent and character of agricultural growth. The contribution of the World Bank to agricultural growth in the three countries will then be reviewed, from the perspectives of both policy advice and lending provided by the Bank. The presentation will be based upon the findings of case studies of the Bank ' s involvement in the three East African countries, carried out under DRD ' s Managing Agricultural Development in Africa (MADIA) Research Project.
