|Title:||Structural adjustment and the effect of drought : the case of Zimbabwe||Authors:||Durkan, Joe||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/1076||Date:||1995||Abstract:||This paper examines the Economic Structural Adjustment Programme (ESAP) of Zimbabwe and considers the effect of drought on the realisation of targets set in the ESAP. The paper concludes that (i) the ESAP was introduced before the debt problem was serious, (ii) the structural repairs were necessary, (iii) the ESAP contained many elements designed to counter the oft-quoted adverse effects of SAPs and (iv) the drought seriously affected the realisation of many of the targets in the ESAP.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
