About the product
Analysis of structural adjustment and its impact on the economies of Sub-Saharan Africa has made considerable progress over the last few years. Debate has shown that liberalization alone is not sufficient to restore sustained growth to the region. This publication presents a study on the impact of liberalization on key markets in Sub-Saharan Africa. It assesses the rate of implementation and the efficiency of structural adjustment programmes in view of the financial and institutional constraints prevailing across the region. It also presents three case studies of food marketing in Tanzania, Malawi and Kenya. These countries, with three different reform paths, provide valuable policy lessons.
