CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency), Wheat and Rural Development in Tanzania

The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) in the course of the 1970s established several large wheat farms in north-central Tanzania. This study, illustrating the ambivalent nature both of Canadian assistance and of Tanzanian policy in the field of rural development, begins by looking at some essential features of the state in Canada to establish the context within which CIDA’s bilateral assistance programme has been formed. Current analyses of the Tanzanian state and its policy of rural development are examined in order to understand the significance of the environment within which CIDA is operating. In a concrete study of the wheat project itself an attempt is made to determine the nature of the influences transferred in this model of Western farming, both on social relations within Tanzania and on Tanzania’s capacity for decreased dependence internationally. Notes, sum. in French.

Abstract: The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) in the course of the 1970s established several large wheat farms in north-central Tanzania. This study, illustrating the ambivalent nature both of Canadian assistance and of Tanzanian policy in the field of rural development, begins by looking at some essential features of the state in Canada to establish the context within which CIDA’s bilateral assistance programme has been formed. Current analyses of the Tanzanian state and its policy of rural development are examined in order to understand the significance of the environment within which CIDA is operating. In a concrete study of the wheat project itself an attempt is made to determine the nature of the influences transferred in this model of Western farming, both on social relations within Tanzania and on Tanzania’s capacity for decreased dependence internationally.
