Growth, distribution and poverty in Africa : messages from the 1990s by Luc J Christiaensen( Book )
29 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 224 libraries worldwide
"This book examines the main factors behind observed poverty changes in eight countries - Ethiopia, Ghana, Madagascar, Mauritania, Nigeria, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. After reviewing the trends in income poverty and other, more direct measures of well-being (such as education, health, and nutrition), the authors go beyond the aggregate numbers and highlight the insights to be gained from unraveling the microeconomic data. These data reveal systematic distributional effects linking growth and poverty, which lead to some groups gaining from episodes of economic growth and others being left behind. Growth, Distribution, and Poverty in Africa describes those groups left behind and calls for public action to ensure that all poor Africans gain from future economic growth."--Page 4 of cover

The Role of Agriculture In Poverty Reduction An Empirical Perspective by Luc J Christiaensen( file )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 70 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 nonagriculture) 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
