Item description for Food Security and Policy Interventions in Sub-Saharan Africa: Lessons from the Past Two Decades (Tinbergen Series nr. 166) by Jos Sijm...

Over the past two decades Sub-Saharan Africa has been confronted with a severe lack of food security. With this observation in mind the present study intends to serve three related objectives. The main objective is to analyse the role of African states and governments in affecting food security, focusing in particular on the role of agricultural price policies versus non-price or structural policy interventions. Secondly, the study aims to provide a comprehensive view of the food-security issue in an African empirical context. Thirdly, it aims to draw lessons from the performance of public interventions in this field. A comparative analysis of the food-security performance is made in four African case- countries, namely Ghana, Malawi, Mali and Tanzania, over a period ranging from the early 1970s to the early 1990s. Where appropriate, the empirical findings on the case-countries are supplemented by more general findings from the literature on this subject. Besides an examination of the incidence and causes of food insecurity in Sub-Saharan Africa, the study analyses how policy interventions in the case-countries have affected food security at the national and household levels.
