It’s going to have to start with the best performers, doing what the so-called Tigers did in East Asia, showing the way for other countries.

    transport costs, unfavorable climate, price risk, and
    illiteracy present formidable hurdles to farmer

    The urban population in Ethiopia is
    increasing rapidly. If managed proactively, urban population
    growth presents a huge opportunity to shift the structure
    and location of economic activity from rural agriculture to

    growth may pose a demographic challenge as cities struggle
    to provide jobs, infrastructure and services, and housing.
