    It is now widely recognized that
    low-income countries in tropical and sub-tropical regions
    will be disproportionally affected by the adverse impacts of
    climate change. The combination of already fragile
    environments, dominance of climate-sensitive sectors in
    economic activity, and low autonomous adaptive capacity in
    these regions implies a high vulnerability to the harmful
    effects of global warming on agricultural production and

    Agricultural and Rural Development (ARD)
    is a fundamental component of Ethiopia's economic
    growth and poverty reduction strategy. The agricultural
    development strategy under Agriculture Development Led
    Industrialization (ADLI) and Sustainable Development and
    Poverty Reduction Program (SDPRP) focused on enhancing the
    productive capacity of smallholder farmers, promoting crop
    diversification, shifting to a market based system, ensuring

    This paper examines the impacts of
    natural disasters on schooling investments with special
    focus on the roles of ex-ante actions and ex-post responses
    using panel data from Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Malawi. The
    importance of ex-ante actions depends on disaster risks and
    the likelihood of public assistance, which potentially
    creates substitution between the two actions. The findings
    show that higher future probabilities of disasters increase

    While the economic returns to using
    chemical fertilizer in Africa can be large, application
    rates are low. This study explores whether this is due to
    missing and imperfect markets. Results based on a panel
    survey of Ethiopian farmers suggest that while fertilizer
    markets are not altogether missing in rural Ethiopia, high
    transport costs, unfavorable climate, price risk, and
    illiteracy present formidable hurdles to farmer

    Ethiopia's rural non-farm sector is
    significant and participation is increasing. The sector is
    particularly important for women and poorer households.
    Non-farm enterprises provide income-earning opportunities to
    those lacking alternative options and supplementary income
    for farming households. This report is organized into seven
    chapters. The first chapter lays the analytical groundwork
    for assessing the rural investment climate in Ethiopia and

    In Africa, farmers have been reluctant
    to take up new varieties of staple crops developed to boost
    smallholder yields and rural incomes. Low fertilizer use is
    often mentioned as a proximate cause, but some believe the
    problem originates with incomplete input markets. As a
    remedy, African governments have introduced technology
    adoption programs with fertilizer subsidies as a core
    component. Still, the links between market performance and

    This paper reviews past studies on the
    costs of land degradation in Ethiopia, with a view to
    drawing implications for policies, programs, and future
    research on sustainable land management (SLM). Given the
    wide range of methods and assumptions used in the studies,
    their findings concerning annual costs of land degradation
    relative to agricultural gross domestic product (AGDP) are
    of remarkably similar magnitude. The minimum estimated
