Abstract:This collective volume aims to contribute to a clearer perception of the complexity and variety of development processes in sub-Saharan Africa. The contributions give insight into the heterogeneity of poverty and development processes and draw conclusions based on current and past development policies in particular African countries. A historical overview of the development policy agenda in Africa by Marcel Rutten and André Leliveld is followed by chapters on natural resource management and poverty in sub-Saharan Africa (Philip Woodhouse); correlates and causes of poverty in Lesotho (Deborah Johnston and John Sender); land tenure policies among Maasai pastoralists in Kenya (Marcel Rutten); political instability, chronic poverty and food production in central Chad (Han van Dijk); transfrontier conservation and development in the Great Limpopo, southern Africa (Marja Spierenburg, Conrad Steenkamp and Harry Wels); the social security function of land in Mbarara District in Uganda (André Leliveld); intra-household differences in coping with illness in rural Ethiopia (Marleen Dekker); urban agriculture and the urban poor in East Africa (Dick Foeken); livelihoods and income diversification among artisanal fishers on the Kenya coast (Jan Hoorweg, Barasa Wangila and Allan Degen); and the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and the reliability of hunger estimates (Wijnand Klaver and Maarten Nubé).
