Egypt - Selected issues in agriculture, irrigation and land reclamation (Inglês)

In Egypt, agriculture accounts for about 23 percent of GDP and 40 percent of total employment, thereby constituting the largest sector of the economy. The faltering performance of the agriculture sector in the last decade is evidenced by a fall in aggregate production growth rates. In contrast population is increasing and rural to urban migration has accelerated. This population increase, coupled with infusions of money from Egyptians working abroad, has increased domestic food demand to a level which greatly exceeds the present capacity of the agriculture sector. After the introduction, Chapter 2 provides a summary of work already done by Egyptians and expatriates under a variety of auspices. Chapter 3 moves to the Bank's own experience in Egypt as a prelude to a discussion of on-going and planned activities. Chapter 4 proposes a future role for the World Bank in Egyptian agriculture in light of a general strategy and the Bank's own experience. Finally, Chapter 5 discusses the rationale for and priority of specific projects considered for inclusion in the project pipeline.
