SAGA brought together key
personnel having extensive experience in
Africa as researchers, teachers, policymakers,
and consultants, to offer a different perspective on growth and poverty reduction.
We focused on the capabilities of individuals,
households, and communitiestheir productivities,
their vulnerabilities, their institutions, and their
David Sahn, director of SAGA, (second from right) and Leopold Sarr, graduate student at Cornell (right), working on field test of education and health survey in Senegal.
|Our aim was to understand further the economic, social, institutional, and natural constraints that keep Africas poor from prospering in the context of growth-oriented reforms.|
