New Paradigms of Agricultural Development Cooperation in Africa: Lessons from Brazil and China

Cette ressource apparaît dans:

As Africa attempts to boost agricultural productivity, many countries are turning to Brazil and China for the possibility of alternative approaches and technologies. Both countries have boasted numerous agricultural achievements, and both are increasing their engagements with African partners.

This policy brief will address these similarities and differences by examining the following questions:

1) How does development ‘aid’ differ from ‘cooperation’?

2) How do Brazil and China describe their approaches to development cooperation and in what ways do they see themselves as different to “traditional donors”?

3) How do Brazil and China support African agricultural technology development in practice?

4) What lessons do these approaches offer for the New Alliance partners?
