For all those working in the areas of agricultural development and food security, this book offers ways to carry out a comprehensive assessment of agricultural sustainability in a micro-region. The authors believe there are six categories of assessment necessary for an holistic evaluation - productivity, stability, efficiency, durability, compatibility and equity. They emphasize the need to make a selection of the most appropriate indicators and develop new ones. Finally, they review a variety of strategies used in different settings around the world and highlight the common features in all the assessments.
