Abstract

The agricultural policy reform process in Africa during the 1980s has been slow partly because it has neglected a number of key factors. Analysis of Zambia's experience during the Second Republic suggests that greater attention needs to be given to institutional heritage, political acceptability, the diversity of policy-making organizations and the policy freedom of subsectoral organizations. Neglect of these issues has led to difficulties in getting policy makers to even conceptualize reform, and has led to much concern over the political implications of insensitive reform proposals.
