"Growth, Distribution, and Poverty in Africa: Messages from the 1990s synthesizes and elaborates on the results of a series of country studies completed under the Poverty Dynamics in Africa Initiative, organized by the Africa Region of the World Bank. These studies made use of vastly improved household survey data, which have enhanced understanding of African poverty dynamics during the past decade."
Down to earth agriculture and poverty reduction in Africa by Luc J Christiaensen( file )
19 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 485 libraries worldwide
This book contributes to the debate about the role of agriculture in poverty reduction by addressing three sets of questions:Does investing in agriculture enhance/harm overall economic growth, and if so, under what conditions? Do poor people tend to participate more/less in growth in agriculture than in growth in other sectors, and if so, when? If a focus on agriculture would tend to yield larger participation by the poor, but slower overall growth, which strategy would tend to have the largest payoff in terms of poverty reduction, and under which conditions?

The role of agriculture in poverty reduction : an empirical perspective by Luc J Christiaensen( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 62 libraries worldwide
The relative contribution of a sector to poverty reduction is shown to depend on its direct and indirect 'growth effects' as well as its 'participation effect'. The paper assesses how these effects compare between agriculture and non-agriculture by reviewing the literature and by analyzing cross-country national accounts and poverty data from household surveys. Special attention is given to Sub-Saharan Africa. While the direct growth effect of agriculture on poverty reduction is likely to be smaller than that of non-agriculture (though not because of inherently inferior productivity growth), the indirect growth effect of agriculture (through its linkages with non-agriculture) appears substantial and at least as large as the reverse feedback effect. The poor participate much more in growth in the agricultural sector, especially in low-income countries, resulting in much larger poverty reduction impact. Together, these findings support the overall premise that enhancing agricultural productivity is the critical entry-point in designing effective poverty reduction strategies, including in Sub-Saharan Africa. Yet, to maximize the poverty reducing effects, the right agricultural technology and investments must be pursued, underscoring the need for much more country specific analysis of the structure and institutional organization of the rural economy in designing poverty reduction strategies
