Abstract:

"The need for increased food production, enhanced economic growth and poverty reduction, whilst at the same time achieving environmental sustainability, is a global issue of growing importance. This book addresses the linkages and tradeoffs involved in solving these challenges. Some of the approaches taken are conceptual and theoretical, others report on specific empirical cases in which linked economic, biophysical and policy models have been used to generate analytical estimates of tradeoffs, whilst others highlight institutional and policy issues involved in trying to achieve multiple social goals simultaneously.

This book is essential reading for those working and studying in the areas of economic and agricultural development, environmental and forest management and policy, and international policy analysis."--Jacket.
