Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU


Planning of the agricultural sector has been neglected in development economies. On this level between macro and project planning, there has been no evident progress either in methodology or in policy-supporting activities of a planning administration. This study aims at demonstrating for a concrete situation in a developing country, Tunisia, how the agricultural sector as a whole should be planned so that there is a talk of usefullness for policy makers. The Tunisian agricultural sector is social economically analysed. The most important problem resulting from this analysis is the poverty and unemployment in rural areas. Then agricultural policy options in the long term, translated into concrete actions. measures and projects are indentified, employment and income distribution taking a central place. Implications of the formulated long-term agricultural development plan for short-term policy and organization of the Tunisian planning administration are indicated. Conclusions on the applicability of the agricultural planning methodology in other developing countries are postulated.
