Written Evidence: Oliver Morrissey, University of Nottingham

Oliver Morrissey, University of Nottingham

This brief submission has two aims:
i) To clarify that while trade can support a poverty-reduction strategy, trade policy cannot ensure that trade is pro-poor and gender equitable because trade is not targeted on either the poor or specific genders.
ii) Growing and processing agricultural products remains the largest sector in terms of employment in sub-Saharan Africa and food accounts for the largest share of consumption spending, so agricultural trade is the most important sector for poverty reduction.
