The Transition to Agricultural Sustainability

The Transition to Agricultural Sustainability

(p.245) Chapter 13 The Transition to Agricultural Sustainability
Can Economic Growth Be Sustained?

Vernon W. Ruttan

Oxford University Press

This chapter talks about the challenges of making the transition to sustainable growth in developed and low-income countries in the 21st century. It focuses on the debate whether the transition will be accompanied by levels of material and energy consumption in poor countries comparable to the levels achieved by industrial countries. The chapter concludes with issues of how much land will be left to nature after meeting the demands for agricultural commodities and the demands for environmental services arising out of population and income growth.

Keywords:   sustainable growth, low-income countries, energy consumption, poor countries, industrial countries, agricultural commodities, environmental services
