"The majority of the world's poor depend directly or indirectly on agriculture. Despite the strong linkages between broad-based agricultural growth and poverty reduction, international support to agriculture sharply declined from the late 1980s. The need to raise agriculture's prominence in the development agenda has never been greater. This book seeks to articulate the World Bank's Rural Strategy on agriculture to the wider development community. It provides decision makers with the rationale for supporting agriculture by presenting the lessons learned on the policies, institutions, and priority investments that can sustain pro-poor agricultural growth. "

The role of agricultural growth in development strategies to benefit the poor -- The rapidly changing context for agriculture: challenges and opportunities -- Policies and institutions to accelerate agricultural growth for the poor -- Public investments for pro-poor growth -- Tailoring development support to diverse agricultural systems.
