Scobie and Veronica Jacobsen Starting about 1980, much of the developing world faced a severe economic crisis. In many cases, this eroded almost all the real gains in substantial economic growth during the previous two decades. Disposable incomes fell, while foreign exchange became scarce in the face of a rising debt burden. Deteriorating terms of trade and growing current account deficits were creating growing resource constraints and widespread balance of payments crises. In some countries, real per capita incomes will barely recover by the turn of the century.

Hatsuya Azumi and Richard Manning of EDI helped bring preliminary results of this work to the attention of research leaders and policymakers in Eastern Africa in 1993 and, with this publication, furthered the search for a common framework for policymaking and institutional development. We extend our thanks also to those agencies that provided financial support for this project: the governments of Italy and Canada, the Special Program for African Agricultural Research, and EDI. We especially acknowledge the contributions of the many authors who documented the complex linkages between adjustment and institutional performance.

Conversely, research leaders will need to take a more active role in contributing to decisionmaking on economic policy reform. It is hoped that this book will contribute to the necessary dialogue on this topic.

Christian Bonte-Friedheim, Howard Elliott, and Barry Nestel of ISNAR were instrumental in initiating and providing guidance throughout the exercise.
