PLOW learning resource: Agriculture and pro-poor growth.

Abstract

This is one of a number of PLOW learning resources designed to support the professional development of DFID livelihoods advisers. Each learning resource comprises an overview of the subject in a briefing note; key texts; a summary of recent policy debates; points on where to find other resources; and a glossary of key terms used in the briefing note. This briefing note looks at (1) Contributions of agriculture to pro-poor growth; (2) Necessary Conditions for pro-poor agricultural growth; and (3) Policies for pro-poor agricultural growth.

This resource was produced by the Programme of Advisory and Support Services (PASS) in partnership with Livelihoods Connect at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS). PASS was a Resource Centre for Livelihoods Advisers that was funded by DFID and managed by HTSPE Limited. The Resource Centre closed in 2007.
