In this book, papers pertaining to resource management for sustainable agricultural development are presented in four parts divided into ten chapters. Part I discusses the usage of water and waste management for sustainable agricultural development including aspects like irrigation management to prevent soil and ground water salinization, production of solid fuel from oil palm waste, sustainable ecomaterials and biorefinery from agroindustrial waste, nonpoint pollution from agriculture and livestock activities on surface water....
Viet Nam’s success in achieving rapid agricultural growth since the implementation of policy reforms in the late 1980s is now well documented (World Bank 2004). Agri-cultural growth was fueled mainly by growth in rice productivity following the rapid adoption of modern varieties, increased fertilizer use, and increased cropping intensity.
In response to growing support for sustainable international development strategies,
the U.S. Congress has recommended that the Agency for International Development
(AID) create a new Collaborative Research Support Program (CRSP) that focuses on the
research needs of sustainable agriculture and natural resource management. The Office
of Agriculture in AID's Bureau for Science and Technology subsequently asked that the
National Research Council's Board on Agriculture (BA) and Board on Science and
Technology for International Development (BOSTID) undertake planning for the new
Abstract Here I tackle three major issues, climate change, financial crisis and
national security, to disclose the weak points of current remedies and propose sustainable
solutions. Global warming and the unexpected 2008 financial crisis will
undoubtedly impact all nations. Treating those two critical issues solely by painkiller
solutions will fail because only adverse consequences are healed, not their
causes. Therefore, all sources of issues must be treated at the same time by enhancing
collaboration between politicians and scientists....
Poverty is a severe problem in Africa, Asia, South America and even in pockets of the
developed world. Addressing poverty alleviation via the expanded use of biological
nitrogen fixation in agriculture was the theme of the 15th International Congress on
This report is ostensibly about land quality indicators (LQIs). However, anyone who reads it will find a useful compilation of advice, experience and opinion on why land quality information is important for sustainable development and how it can be used more effectively for planning and decision making. But the report also poses as many questions as it answers, which in itself reflects the diversity of viewpoints on indicators.
11 Understanding products used in sustainable agriculture
It is easy to become confused by the ever-increasing range of new products being offered as an answer to sustainable farming. Many of these products are in fact very helpful, if used in the correct way and in the correct place.
It has become a habit that following completion of a research programme, a review
or assessment is performed. Partly to justify the money and efforts that went into the
programme and partly to identify novel directions for new programmes. Following
this tradition, the sponsor of the International Cooperation research programme
(DLO-IC), the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (LNV),
asked a small group of scientists to draw lessons from its recently completed North-
Systematizing the theoretical issues of sustainable development in general and sustainable development of agriculture in particular, the thesis analyzes, assesses the current agricultural development status of the Northern mountainous midland provinces in a sustainable way in the past years and proposes recommendations to promote the rapid development of sustainable agriculture from now until 2020.
Rapid economic growth is the only sustainable foundation for the elimination of poverty. However, only strategies that include agricultural development can establish strong links between overall growth and reduction in poverty. Most strategies that seek rapid industrialization at the expense of agriculture, even if the intent is to alleviate poverty, actually slow down economic growth and increase levels of poverty. In a country with many impoverished people, policymaker must address both growth and poverty through an.......
Seventy-five percent of the world’s poor live in rural areas and most are involved in farming. In the 21st century, agriculture remains fundamental to economic growth, poverty alleviation, and environmental sustainability. The World Bank’s Agriculture and Rural Development publication series presents recent analyses of issues that affect agriculture’s role as a source of economic development, rural livelihoods, and environmental services.

The Ramsar Convention defined the wise use of peatlands as “their sustainable
use for the benefit of mankind in a way compatible with the maintenance of the
natural properties of the ecosystem.” Land sustainability relates to definite periods
and land uses.
The concern I want to raise in this chapter is related to the relationship between indigenous
identities, knowledge systems and indigenous values and world views compared to world
views found in South Africa’s new curricula after new dispensation. What are the values the
indigenous pupils meet at home? Do they concur with those of the new curricula after 1994?
The rationale for this focus is related to the question of whether the South African primary
school is ‘their school’, i.e the school for the majority of South African children in terms of
culture and knowledge....
describe environmentally conscious design technique in the field on buildings and
architecture: how to minimize the negative environmental impact of buildings by
enhancing the energy efficiency, water efficiency, use sustainable (renewable or
recyclables) materials of construction. Section 4 is a collection of articles related to
sustainable agriculture and food security: systems of food production that provide
secure supply to meet the world growing population.
Access to safe drinking water and sanitation is a basic necessity. However, such access is highly
variable around the world and in particular in Africa, Asia and South America. Much progress still
remains to be made in infrastructure improvements and poverty reduction. A recent World Bank
report, for example, noted that more than 100 million people in the Latin American region alone
lack access to potable water and adequate sanitation systems.
Compounding the issue of water availability is contamination of water supplies and the lack of
wastewater treatment facilities.
