Extractions: Agrarian reform and rural development strategies in eastern and central Africa: Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe M. Riad El-Ghonemy M. RIAD EL-GHONEMY is fellow, Department of Economics, American University in Cairo, Egypt and senior research associate, International Development Centre at Queen Elizabeth House, University of Oxford. Introduction Endnotes As suggested in the title of the workshop, the ideological shift expressed in the phrase "post-cold war" is a point of reference. Perhaps no other institution is more susceptible to ideological change than property rights in land. My understanding of the workshop background material leads me to suggest that we are indeed addressing two related questions. 1) How far does the realization of sustained economic growth and poverty reduction justify change in the institution of property rights, the power of the state and the freedom of entrepreneurs?

Extractions: TORIES AND LABOUR BETRAY THE FARMERS I n the 4 years 1996-2000, prices for farm products have fallen by 31%, output has fallen by 20% and farm incomes by 61% in real terms. The main cause was the rise in value of sterling by 37% in that period. The pain for farming has been even more brutal than for manufacturing because support prices for all its output (not just the traded part) are fixed in Euros and compensatory arrangements for exchange rate fluctuations are being phased out. The milk support price fell from 26p per litre to 16p between 1995 and 2000 (of which 6p was a direct consequence of the rise in the £). Other support prices fell too. As a result, 42,000 jobs were lost in farming, many farms were pushed to the edge of bankruptcy and investment in agriculture fell by 40%. It was primarily the rise in sterling which caused these problems, exacerbated by the mishandling of the BSE crisis and now by the tragedy of foot and mouth disease. The recent modest recovery in the Euro exchange rate eased the pain and brought a little hope. But a secure future will only be possible if membership of the Euro at a reasonable exchange rate within the next few years provides stability. The reform of the CAP and the vital move towards a more sustainable organic future can then take place in a context in which rural life is not destroyed. William Hague's policy of excluding Euro membership in the next parliament is thus a blatant betrayal of farmers' economic interest - putting political demagogy first. The Brown policy of neglecting the exchange rate has created a two speed economy in which, as one farmer put it "Those who play with money prosper, and those who make or grow things take the pain"
Extractions: 3.5 Survey of Women employed in rural businesses For an overview of the employment patterns of women in rural towns a survey of 100 businesses in 13 towns was undertaken as part of this study. The towns were selected from those with populations of between 1,000 and 10,000. They are Kerikeri, Kawakawa, Waipawa/Eltham, Te Kuiti, Bulls, Wairoa, Thames, Carterton, Alexandra, Waimate, Westport, Temuka and Cromwell. Businesses were selected to provide a wide range of business types. These were then grouped into sectors. The survey achieved a 77% response rate. Within these 77 businesses, 492 women were employed either full-time or part-time. The numbers returned from each sector were as shown in the table below:
