Economics of Agricultural Development examines the causes, severity, and effects of poverty, population growth, and malnutrition in developing countries.

Gender issues in relation to agriculture and resource use







The contribution of improved technologies to agricultural development







The importance of agricultural policies and institutions to development and trade







Actions to encourage more rapid agricultural and economic development








This new edition reflects the following developments:








Growth in environmental challenges due to climate change







Continued progress in agricultural and economic development in many low-income











countries while other countries and regions are being left behind







Continued growth in demand for higher-valued farm products








This book is essential reading for undergraduate students seeking to understand the economics of agricultural development and the world food system, including environmental and human consequences, international trade, and capital flows. It contains a wealth of real-world case studies and is accompanied by a website.
