Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... hitting the entire agrarian sector while at the same time reducing the cost of living in urban slums?

You are referring to studies on how African agrarian communities react to the impact of First World attacks on their livelihood that silo off the original cause of the sector-wide income shocks. Assuming sector-wide income shocks that are inversely correlated with urban informal sector real incomes to predict the response to the removal of that pattern of shock is begging the question.

Indeed, if access by women to education is inversely related to rates of population growth, starting an explanation of which sectors of the population of the most densely populated rural areas are forced into internal migration to the urban informal sector by assuming that poorer households will have higher birth rates is another silo.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
