Structural adjustment, when it reduces barriers to trade and increases incentives for market production, may broadly stimulate agricultural commercialization. In this working paper, the actual effects of adjustment for production, input utilization, income, consumption, and nutrition are traced in The Gambia. The study is one outcome of a long-standing fruitful cooperation between IFPRI and the Planning Unit of the Ministry of Agriculture in The Gambia.
