Abstract

Liberalisation of cereal markets has been one of the most significant events that have taken place during the last 15 years in Eastern and Southern Africa. This major change, which is part of stabilisation and structural adjustment packages applied in most countries of the sub-region, has had considerable impact on the situation prevailing in the agriculture and food sectors. Late 1996, the Economic Policy Research Centre (EPRC) of the Makerere University in Kampala, and FAO’s Policy Assistance Division organised an Expert Workshop on Post-liberalisation Cereal Commodity Markets in Eastern and Southern Africa with the objective of strengthening the capacity of countries in the sub-region in the identification, analysis, formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of food and agriculture policies. The workshop also facilitated exchange of experience with the policy cycle in selected countries with special reference to liberalisation of cereal commodity markets, and promote Technical Co-operation among Developing Countries.
