Public Expenditure on Food and Agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa
In Africa, public expenditure is one of the main tools enabling governments to alleviate poverty,
fight hunger, and accelerate the transformation of agriculture. Agriculture remains an essential
sector of the economy, providing jobs and acting as an engine of growth. However, despite
government pledges to invest more in agriculture, several areas of the sector remain underfunded,
which holds back their development potential. This is especially true for sub-Saharan Africa.
