This volume explores the usefulness of the Asian model of agricultural development for Africa, where, even before the
recent world food crisis, half the population lived on less than on dollar a day, and a staggering one in three people
and one third of all children were undernourished. Africa has abundant natural resources; agriculture provides most of
its jobs, a third of national income and a larger portion of total export earnings. However the levels of land and labor
productivity rank among the worst in the world. The book explains Africa's productivity gap and proposes ways to close
it, by examining recent experience in Africa and by drawing on lessons from Asia.
