Omtale Economics of Agricultural Development
Economics of Agricultural Development examines the causes, severity, and effects of poverty, population growth, and malnutrition in developing countries. It discusses potential solutions to these problems, progress made in many countries in recent years, and the implications of globalization for agriculture, poverty, and the environment.

Topics covered in the book include:

Means for utilizing agricultural surpluses to further overall economic development

The sustainability of the natural resource environment

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.
