Title

Science and poverty: An interdisciplinary assessment of the impact of agricultural research

Author

Meinzen-Dick, Ruth; Adato, Michelle; Haddad, Lawrence; Hazell, Peter

Description

Though agricultural research has increased the yields of food crops leading to more food availability and trade opportunities, people in rural areas still live in extreme poverty.  Policymakers, donors, and researchers are refocusing their priorities to making sure that agricultural research benefits the poor.  This report examines seven case studies from the developing world with the hope of measuring the impacts of new technologies as well as factors that may determine whether the poor adopt or benefit from a technology.
