  1. Global Agricultural Policy Reform and Trade

    Global Agricultural Policy Reform and Trade

    Edited by Joseph Cooper
    This timely new book analyzes the possible linkages between agricultural trade liberalization and the environment, and assesses the negative and positive impacts of any possible reforms. The authors begin by providing an extensive empirical examination of the potential environmental consequences of agricultural trade liberalization at both a global and US level. However, not only might changes in trade policy affect the environment, but environmental policy can also influence trade. Consequently, the authors conduct a detailed study of the impact of US agri-environmental policies on trade flows. To conclude, they investigate conceptual and policy aspects of the important inter-relationship between agricultural trade and unintentional environmental by-products, transboundary concerns and multilateral environmental agreements.

    Land Quality, Agricultural Productivity, and Food Security

    Edited by Keith Wiebe
    The contributors to this book – including soil scientists, geographers, and economists – analyse data on soils, climate, land cover, agricultural inputs and outputs, and a variety of socio-economic factors to provide new insights into three key issues: • the extent to which differences in land quality generate differences in agricultural productivity across countries • how farmers’ responses to differences or changes in land quality are influenced by economic, environmental, and institutional factors, and • whether land degradation over time threatens productivity growth and food security at local, regional, and global levels.

  7. Nature and Agriculture in the European Union

    Nature and Agriculture in the European Union

    Edited by Floor Brouwer, Jan van der Straaten
    Nature and agriculture both shape the European countryside and one of the main challenges for the years to come will be to strengthen their interaction for the future development of rural areas. In this valuable and highly topical book, the authors demonstrate how economics and ecology can play a critical role in maintaining and sustaining this relationship. The book identifies the dilemmas facing European agriculture and explores their economic and ecological consequences. The authors believe a better understanding of these problems will be crucial in recognising the potential options for the future role of agriculture and nature policy and will guide the identification of suitable policy instruments.

  8. Biodiversity in the Balance

    Biodiversity in the Balance

    Raffaello Cervigni
    Biodiversity in the Balance summarises the scientific and economic debate and highlights disagreements about the definitions of biodiversity management objectives. The author goes on to develop an original analytical treatment of the incremental cost financing mechanisms adopted by the Convention on Biological Diversity. Significantly, he undertakes a microeconomic study of land use change in a biosphere reserve in South-East Mexico. Based on an original data set, the author presents a detailed modelling exercise of resource and land use choices at the individual farm level with related projections of the impact at both community and regional levels. Techniques used include multi-period linear programming and dynamic stock-flow simulation. The book concludes by addressing policy implications and options for future research. Learn More

  10. Food Security in Asia

    Food Security in Asia

    Edited by Wen S. Chern, Colin A. Carter, Shun-Yi Shei
    Food security can be defined as the perceived availability of a high-quality, domestically-produced staple food supply which will maintain the existing standard of living. This book provides a forum for a panel of distinguished authors to debate such issues as whether or not many developed countries in Asia – such as Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong and Singapore – have legitimate concerns about their food security. They find, controversially, that this issue is of importance to all countries, not just to developing countries lacking the income to acquire an adequate food supply. Learn More
