DEGRP's research on agriculture and growth focuses on a number of key areas:

  • the conditions under which agricultural growth can contribute to overall economic growth and support structural transformation for a modern, high value-added economy;
  • how agricultural productivity can be raised at the level of households, farms and farming communities? 
  • how the potential of irrigation can be exploited in those countries, primarily in sub-Saharan Africa, where current use represents a small fraction of what may be possible.
