Abstract
Between 2005 and 2010, rice producers in Burkina Faso received higher prices than equivalent world prices, indicating that they faced price incentives. This trend is consistent with national policy objectives, which aim to boost rice production. However, price incentives were primarily due to a duopoly in the country’s export market, which led to higher domestic prices and a disconnect between domestic and international markets.
