The present paper was prepared as part of the work programme of food and agriculture for the 1988-1989 biennium. It constitutes element 2.4 on multinational co-operation on livestock development in Africa and it focuses on the performance of the sector in the face of government intervention and the structural adjustment programmes (SAP). The effect of the SAP on the achievement of increased collective self-sufficiency and self-reliance in animal food production and supply was given particular attention.

Prom several converging estimates, world's population is expected to reach 6.1 billion by the year 2000 or 1.7 billion more than in 1980. Most of the increase in population will be generated by developing countries in general and by African countries in particular. This means there will have to be a substantial increase in world food production of at least 50 percent.

Le présent rapport a pour objectif d'examiner les résultats obtenus, de recenser les expériences novatrices et de fournir un cadre de discussion pour l'avenir. Cette politique s'expliquait par les choix politiques des dirigeants nationaux, le désir des gouvernements de pays nouvellement indépendants d'innover et d'agir rapidement, la nécessite d'apaiser les groupes de pression intérieurs, et, quelquefois, le manque de données fiables sur l'efficacité de ces systèmes au niveau de l'exploitation agricole.
