    Agricultural investments made by developing countries and multilateral development banks (MDBs) have declined in recent decades. This decline is associated with a slowdown in the growth of agriculture productivity. Most development institutions have recognized the damage caused by this past neglect, in part evident in rising food prices, and renewed attention to agriculture and agribusiness is emerging. But this renewed interest will need to deliver results, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, where the MDBs have had the least success but where the needs and opportunities are enormous.

    The purpose of this study is to assess
    agriculture's competitiveness in Colombia. During the
    past 12 years, Colombia's agricultural sector has
    performed poorly, resulting in the continuation of extensive
    rural poverty. Improving the sector's competitiveness
    is the only sure and lasting way to improve its growth
    performance and reduce poverty. Thus, the main objectives of
    this study are to assess: (a) the sector's current and

    This report shows that after a decade of
    moderate growth but little or no long term change in rural
    poverty in Pakistan, agricultural output, rural incomes,
    rural poverty and social welfare indicators all showed
    marked improvements between 2001-02 and 2004-05. However,
    longer term trends suggest there is little reason for
    complacency. The agricultural GDP per capita growth rate
    (1999- 2000 to 2004-05) was only 0.3 percent per year; rural

    Reducing poverty continues to be one of
    the main priorities of the Government of Albania. Currently,
    Albania has an ample platform to provide social protection
    to its citizens through social insurance, social assistance
    and employment programs. However, these programs are not
    efficiently linked to each other, which can lead to unclear
    and occasionally overlapping roles among the programs. Among
    these social protection programs, Ndihma Ekonomike (NE) is
