Agriculture, Environment and Health by Vernon W. Ruttan

Book Description

This study offers an interdisciplinary analysis of changes, now under way at the global level, in an institutional design and policy reform that will ultimately promote sustainable growth in agricultural production. Contributors from the agricultural, health, environmental and social sciences argue that an interdisciplinary approach is essential to dealing with this global problem. Particular attention is given to the institutions conducting research and implementing changes in technology and practice, in the fields of agriculture and health; also to those that monitor the changes in resource endowments, the quality of the environment, and the health and productivity of the human resources employed in agricultural production. This text is designed to assist the building of bridges between research efforts across the disciplines of health, environment, and agriculture. Sustainable development will only be achieved if knowledge from separate disciplines is effectively communicated and becomes integrated into the basis of all research conclusions and directives.
