Transition has had an adverse impact on women. The challenge is for partnerships - internal and external – to generate development interventions that can successfully transform the negative impact of the transition into opportunities to improve the lives of the majority of men, women, and children. It is also clear that there are sub-regional differences and some participants reiterated the need for such workshops at a sub-regional level.

Safety nets redistribute income, thereby immediately reducing poverty and inequality; they enable households to invest in the human capital of their children and in the livelihoods of their earners; they help households manage risk, both ex ante and ex post; and they allow governments to implement macroeconomic or sectoral reforms that support efficiency and growth.

Structural Transformation and Rural Change Revisited

issuu.com/world.bank.publications/docs/9780821395127...
This book makes a compelling case for reintegrating structural issues into agricultural and rural development policies, which have for the last 30 years over-focused on short-term issues. It shows how the liberalization of agriculture in many late developing countries has not in fact led to the development of the vibrant rural non-farm economy so often discussed in the literature. Neither has it led to a large-scale integration of agricultural producers into the global economy. Most producers remain engaged in traditional crops—mainly staples—and in traditional marketing systems characterized by limited contractualization. Yet in spite of these observations the book draws optimistic conclusions: there are a clear set of policy priorities that, if adapted to individual country contexts, can facilitate an enduring and productive rural transformation.
