In a world where growth and development often come at the expense of resource degradation, it is important to understand the nature of this degradation and explore possible solutions. The preferred approach to development is one that is sustainable. However, the path to sustainable development is neither obvious nor simple; for one thing, sustainability has many interrelated components. This book examines the links between sustainability and various other topics, in the process exploring and integrating many of the components. Thus, the purpose is to provide a broad but in-depth discussion of the issues, concepts, methods of analysis and empirical results related to the sustainable development of agriculture and rural communities.
