Abstract

This manual has been prepared as part of a series of training materials for use in programmes of capacity-building in policy formulation and analysis.

The main purpose of these guidelines is to clarify and make explicit the logical process and the analytical techniques used in analysing and assessing the impact of government macroeconomic and sectoral policies and programmes on the development and performance of the agro-industrial sector policies and programmes on the development and performance of the agro-industrial sector. This entails identifying and making a distinction between policies encouraging an efficient use of resources and furthering social objectives, and policies that may be retarding the development process. It is expected that agro-industrial policy reviews can enhance the sector's contribution to development goals by identifying existing constraints and distortions and suggesting ways in which policy instruments might be reformed or refined to make them more effective.
