Famine in Africa : causes, responses, and prevention by Joachim Von Braun( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Famine in Africa is a wide-ranging look at the complex causes of famine and an examination of measures to respond to and prevent the devastation of famine. Although famines can appear to arise suddenly, the authors argue that famines are actually a result of the long-term failure of institutions, organizations, and policies. Relying on a wealth of empirical research from Africa, Joachim von Braun, Tesfaye Teklu, and Patrick Webb draw lessons for policymakers and aid organizations that can help in the effort to remove future threats of famine.

5 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses in particular on the interactions between agricultural growth and environment and between environment and poverty. The chapters analyze and illustrate these interactions with case study evidence from the developing world in general and from specific agroclimatic zones in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The contributors also discuss the implications of these links for development policies, agricultural technologies, and social and economic institutions. With a clearer picture of how these goals interact, policymakers and researchers can design strategies for working more effectively to meet them
Intrahousehold resource allocation in developing countries : models, methods, and policy( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new volume from the International Food Policy Research Institute, economists, demographers, sociologists, and anthropologists collaborate in the study of how resources are allocated within households in developing countries and why it matters from a policy perspective. Surveying a broad body of theory and evidence, the contributors examine the many social and cultural factors that influence decisions at the family and household level about the allocation of time, income, assets, and other resources. Shedding new light on a process that is often hidden from view and difficult to measure, they show that a more complete understanding of intrahousehold behavior can increase the likelihood that policies will reach the people they are intended to affect - leading to better policies in areas such as food production and consumption, nutrition, natural resource management, and fertility

The future of food : biotechnology markets and policies in an international setting( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Chinese and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the future of food? Everyone agrees that feeding the world in the decades ahead will require substantial increases in crop yields. But how we get there has become a remarkably contentious question because of biotechnology. What should be biotechnology's role in assuring affordable and sustainably grown food for all? How we answer this question now will have profound ramifications for decades to come. The chapters in this book confront the controversy over biotechnology with new analyses and insights from economists and technologists. The topics covered include the differences in perceptions about biotechnology among rich and poor countries; the effects of rich-country restrictions on international trade in genetically modified crops on the welfare of poorer countries; the effects of intellectual property rights on the bioscience done by public agencies the world over; and the economic impacts of biotechnology

Institutional reforms in Indian irrigation by Ashok Gulati( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Irrigation is critical to food security and economic growth in contemporary India. The performance of irrigation systems is of serious concern to farmers who rely on them for their crops and livelihoods and to governments that have invested heavily in their development. The most severe problems facing Indian irrigation systems are the increasing costs of new schemes, the huge backlog of incomplete schemes, and the increasing neglect of existing systems. Large-scale canal irrigation systems, in particular, are in poor condition: they are not properly maintained, operations are inadequate, water supplies do not reach the end of systems, and the timing of water supply is unreliable. The wide gap between actual and desirable performance threatens the sustainability of irrigated agriculture. How did this state of affairs come to pass? ... [The authors conclude that] more than just structural changes are necessary to achieve adequate reform and improve the performance and long-term sustainability of irrigation systems. Changes in attitudes are also required in how government agencies view farmers and how farmers depend on the government."--Text
