Two New ReSAKSS Issue Briefs Find Implementing CAADP Beneficial for Poverty Reduction and Growth in Mozambique and Ghana

September 23, 2009

ReSAKSS Issue Briefs number 14 on Mozambique and number 15 on Ghana analyze the feasibility of the CAADP 6 percent agricultural growth target and its potential impact on the economies of the countries. Although the two countries are very different in terms of their current agricultural performance, the analyses show that the 6 percent agricultural growth target is within reach for both countries and that it can significantly reduce poverty.

Issue brief number 14 finds that current agricultural growth alone is insufficient for Mozambique to meet MDG1. However, by increasing agricultural growth to just over 6 percent, the country will be on track toward halving poverty by 2015. In contrast, Ghana is already on track to meeting MDG1, but the CAADP agricultural growth rate will enable the country to achieve middle-income country status by 2015, something that is not possible under its current growth path.
