DFID - Department for International Development (June 2014)
DFID uses a range of evidence synthesis approaches to address the challenge of providing decision makers with the evidence that they need to make better choices.
The “evidence paper” is an expression of the opinion that DFID has of the existing evidence on a given subject. This paper, written by staff members of DFID, provides a summary of evidence underpinning a range of debates related to agriculture and economic growth. The authors do not attempt to prescribe policy conclusions, which, for DFID, will appear elsewhere. This is not a policy document, and is not meant to represent DFID’s policy position.
The papers cover:
Agriculture and growth
Agriculture and poverty
Agriculture and private sector
Agriculture and women
Food Prices and Poverty
