    The purpose of this policy note is to

    a climate that is generally favorable for the production of
    crops and livestock, Swaziland is obliged to import
    substantial amounts of food to feed the population. Also,

    Africa

    This paper sheds light on how to harvest

    creating jobs in agriculture. The agriculture that attracts

    dynamic. These are the same characteristics needed for
    agriculture to deliver growth, to improve food security, and
    to preserve a fragile natural environment. With higher
    priority accorded to implementation of well-designed public

    million people that has just emerged from conflict and still

    the distribution of political and economic power between the
    northern and southern parts of then united Sudan were often
    tendered as the proximal causes of the conflict, at the
    center of the prolonged civil war was the struggle for
