This book focuses on the challenges people face in managing agricultural crops, aquaculture, fisheries and related ecosystems in inland areas of coastal zones in the tropics of Asia, Africa, Australia and South America. These challenges can create conflicts in the use of natural resources between different stakeholders. Through many case studies, the book discusses the nature of the conflicts and identifies what is known and not known about how to manage them. For example, some case studies relate to the trade-offs between enhancing agricultural production by constructing embankments to keep out saline water and maintaining not only the variety of rural livelihoods but also brackish aquatic biodiversity. Other case studies provide the lessons learnt from the conversion of mangrove forests to shrimp farms.

  • Alternative approaches to assessing tradeoffs in resource management-- economic and environmental tradeoffs in tropical deforestation-- challenges facing favoured versus less-favoured agroecosystems-- institutional and policy issues. (Part contents).
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)9780851994352 20160605
The need for increased food production, enhanced economic growth and poverty reduction, whilst at the same time achieving environmental sustainability, is an issue of growing importance. This book address the linkages and tradeoffs involved in solving such key 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 (often quantitative) estimates of tradeoffs, whilst others highlight institutional and policy issues involved in trying to achieve multiple social goals simultaneously. Emprical applications to areas throughout the developing world are included.

The decline in agricultural and other forms of rural employment in developed countries has lead to a recognised need for integrated development that provides a realistic means of diversification into tourism and recreation for rural businesses. This book provides information concerning small and micro-enterprises and how they can create and adapt products and markets. It is appropriate for advanced students as well as rural business practitioners in the leisure and tourism fields.

In a world where growth and development often come at the expense of resource degradation, it is important to understand the nature of this degradation and explore possible solutions. The preferred approach to development is one that is sustainable. However, the path to sustainable development is neither obvious nor simple; for one thing, sustainability has many interrelated components. This book examines the links between sustainability and various other topics, in the process exploring and integrating many of the components. Thus, the purpose is to provide a broad but in-depth discussion of the issues, concepts, methods of analysis and empirical results related to the sustainable development of agriculture and rural communities. The book is comprised of 12 chapters contributed by authors from a variety of disciplines, with sustainability as the common link. The perspective is either national (the USA), or international, but global implications can be drawn. Each chapter addresses one or more of the following components of sustainability: economic; social or demographic; community; environmental; and human health. Specific chapters explore the links between sustainability and related topics such as industrialization, farm size, role of markets versus government regulation, production technology, community, gender, population growth, economics, public policy, land use and information. The final chapter is devoted to synthesizing some of the issues in the context of identifying areas for, and challenges of future research in the area. The approach of the book is to present the evidence, (using a combination of case studies, examples, sample and literature surveys and observation) and then interpret it in the light of individual understanding and experience.

Changes in market organisation, climatic conditions and societal demands on food quality, animal welfare and environmental quality have created new conditions for farming families as well as for researchers and policy makers. New social, technical and economic solutions are needed for farming and rural areas. This book presents new perspectives for farms, farm products and rural areas, many of which were collectively developed by coalitions of farmers, farmer representatives, researchers, civilians and/or policy makers. Contributions are made from those involved in crop and animal production worldwide offering sections on natural resources management, development of sustainable rural systems, future perspectives for farming families, knowledge systems in transition and learning processes in multi-stakeholder processes. This unique collection of contributions, presenting insights from bio-physical as well as social sciences, shows where practice meets analysis and reflection and offers new perspectives for rural areas throughout the world.

Essential reading for all rural development students and practitioners in the 1990s, this book examines the paradigm shift in rural development from an industrial to a holistic approach to technology development, from a technocratic to a participatory approach to management, and from resource control by big organisations to local resource management. It provides a broad ranging assessment of agriculture and local level institutional development and sets out a range of agendas for development practice, management and policy into the 21st century.
