2018/04 – United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER); WIDER Working Paper 45/2018; Author(s): Marie Albertine Djuikom - Details

This paper investigates the effect of internal labour migration on agricultural productivity of rural households in Uganda. Since households select themselves into migration this raises the endogeneity problem. In order to account for the endogeneity of the migration decision and the fact that the effect might be different from one household to another, I model the households’ decisions to participate in migration along with their investment in agricultural productivity using the Bayesian treatment analysis. This approach allows me to self-match each household and to estimate a distribution for the counterfactual outcome.

2018/02 – European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM); ECDPM & GDPRD discussion paper; Author(s): Paul Engel - Details

Development partners are making efforts to strengthen coherence between their Trade and Agricultural and Rural Development (ARD) policies and interventions. This is key to enhance synergies for sustainable development, or at the very least to avoid one policy undermining the developmental effects of the other. It requires enhanced dialogue and cooperation between trade and ARD communities. This exploratory study seeks to analyse the ongoing debate and cooperation between ARD and trade, and aid for trade departments.
