The 2017 Transformation Report “Agriculture Powering Africa’s Economic Transformation” views agriculture through a transformational lens rooted in national economies.  The report’s approach is intended for African policy makers, addressing key issues such as land tenure, improving productivity, commercialization of farming, agribusiness, employment, the role of women in agriculture, and climate change.  The report emphasizes that agricultural transformation incorporates two processes – modernizing farming by boosting productivity and strengthening the links between farms and other economic sectors, particularly manufacturing through agro-processing.  The report is the second Transformation Report from the African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET), an economic policy institute supporting Africa’s long-term growth through transformation.
