"Agriculture Productivity Growth: Is the Current Trend on the Track to Poverty Reduction?"
by Valenzuela, Ernesto, Maros Ivanic, Carlos Ludena and Thomas Hertel


Abstract
In this study we evaluate the effect of annual productivity growth in agriculture over the 1991-2001 period on poverty in eleven developing countries. We compare this with the optimal pattern of productivity growth of comparable cost with the sole goal of maximizing poverty reduction. This comparison reveals that regional agricultural development is a viable option in the fight for poverty reduction.
