Review of the European Agricultural Development Assistance to Sub-Saharan Africa

The imperial College reviewed the European Agricultural Development Assistance to Sub-Saharan Africa (Report of May 2010).

This review seeks to create an online tool for better understanding European donor support for agricultural development in sub-Saharan Africa. It is an initial attempt to map the activities, political and financial commitments of fourteen different European donors.
  • The background and rationale introduces the thinking that influenced the development of this review.
  • The information on each donor presented in this review is listed here
  • The section on donor institutions and initiatives sets out the institutional landscape for each donor reviewed.
  • The agricultural assistance data is an overview of donor commitments and disbursements on agricultural development to sub-Saharan Africa based on OECD-DAC data. A paper on this data can be accessed below and here.
On May 10th 2010, Imperial College and ONE hosted a joint workshop to discuss the challenges of measuring agricultural development assistance (see picture).
