After the green revolution by Gordon R Conway and Edward B Barbier 1990 205pp paperback ISBN 1853 035 6 Published by Earthscan Publications Ltd 3 Endsleigh Street London WC1H ODD, UK
After the green revolution is a publication about the place of sustainable agriculture in the whole context of development. Maximizing agricultural yields was, in the past, the paramount objective but insufficient attention was given to the sustainability and stability of production or to how the benefits were to be distributed. This book examines the priorities and conditions for improving agricultural sustainability. At the international level it focusses on the constraints of trade and the global economy. At the national level it looks at the crucial role of government resources policies. A number of development approaches are then examined and specific examples analysed. The conclusion stresses that progress depends on evaluating and resolving numerous tradeoffs at all levels of intervention. The book does not attempt to present solutions but to provide a framework for raising issues and setting priorities for analysis. Tables, flow charts and extensive references help to provide that framework.
