Water and agriculture : sustainability, markets and policies by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 148 libraries worldwide
Agriculture is a major user of water and is responsible for much of its pollution. But the agricultural sector faces increasing competition for scarce water supplies from urban and industrial users and, increasingly, to sustain ecosystems. These conference proceedings explore how both governments and the private sector can expand the role of markets to allocate water used by all sectors and to get agricultural producers to account for the pollution that their sector generates.--Publisher's description
The pig sector by Darryl Jones( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 146 libraries worldwide
Trade liberalization affects the pattern and structure of agricultural production, with consequences for the environment. But what are these impacts? And do agri-environmental policies affect international competitiveness? This study takes an in-depth look at the pig sector in OECD countries and draws some conclusions about the most appropriate forms of policy intervention. Further trade liberalization is likely to strengthen market trends in the pig sector. Production is expected to slow, if not contract, in OECD European and Asian countries. In these countries, government support for pig production in the form of tariffs and/or export subsidies is generally the highest, and the environmental impacts of pig production on water and air pollution are of greatest concern. This book argues that liberalizing trade is therefore likely to generate some environmental benefits.--Publisher summary
Sustainable management of water resources in agriculture by Kevin Parris( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 120 libraries worldwide
Agriculture is the major user of water in most countries. It also faces the enormous challenge of producing almost 50% more food by 2030 and doubling production by 2050. This will likely need to be achieved with less water, mainly because of growing pressures from urbanisation, industrialisation and climate change. In this context, it will be important in future for farmers to receive the right signals to increase water use efficiency and improve agricultural water management, while preserving aquatic ecosystems. This report calls on policy makers to recognise the complexity and diversity of water resource management in agriculture and the wide range of issues at stake. And it gives them the tools to do so, offering a wealth of information on recent trends and the outlook for water resource use in agriculture, including the impacts of climate change. It examines the policy experiences of OECD countries in managing their water resources for agriculture, with focus on: the extent to which countries subsidise the supply of water to farmers; flood and drought risk policies; and institutional organisation and governance as it relates to water and the agricultural sector. The report offers concrete recommendations on what countries should be doing and why
EEC oilseed products sector and the common agricultural policy by Kevin Parris( Book )
5 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 33 libraries worldwide
Water quality and agriculture : meeting the policy challenge by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Staff( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
Annotation Improving water quality is consistently ranked as a top environmental concern in OECD public opinion surveys. The key challenges for policy makers in addressing water quality issues in agriculture are to reduce water pollution while encourage benefits, such as maintaining aquatic life. This book examines linking policies, farm management and water quality. It looks at recent trends and prospects for water pollution from agriculture and the implications of climate change. It assesses the costs and benefits of agriculture's impact on water systems, and presents a series of case studies. Finally the report provides a set of recommendations for countries for meeting the challenge of improving agricultural water quality

Gestion durable des ressources en eau dans le secteur agricole by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 2 libraries worldwide
L'agriculture est le principal utilisateur d'eau dans la plupart des pays. Ce secteur est également confronté à l'énorme défi d'augmenter la production de produits alimentaires de presque 50 % d'ici 2030 et de la faire doubler d'ici 2050. Ceci devra probablement être réalisé en consommant moins d'eau, principalement en raison des pressions croissantes résultant de l'urbanisation, de l'industrialisation et du changement climatique. Dans ce contexte, il est important qu'à l'avenir les agriculteurs reçoivent les bons signaux pour augmenter l'efficacité de l'utilisation de l'eau et améliorer sa gestion à usage agricole, tout en préservant les écosystèmes aquatiques. Ce rapport incite les responsables de l'élaboration des politiques à reconnaître la complexité et la diversité des aspects de la gestion des ressources en eau dans l'agriculture ainsi que la vaste gamme des problèmes qui sont en jeu. Il leur procure également les outils pour le faire, en offrant une profusion d'informations sur les tendances récentes et des perspectives sur l'utilisation des ressources en eau dans l'agriculture, en intégrant notamment les impacts du changement climatique. Il examine les résultats obtenus par les pays de l'OCDE en matière de gestion de leurs ressources en eau à usage agricole, en se concentrant sur : l'ampleur des subventions accordées aux agriculteurs pour leur besoin en eau ; les mesures de protection contre les inondations et les sécheresses ; et l'organisation et la gestion des institutions liées à l'eau et au secteur agricole. Le rapport propose des recommandations concrètes sur ce que les pays devraient faire et sur les raisons pour lesquelles ils devraient le faire
