Beschreibung

This book looks at agricultural systems and rural economies in Asia through the prism of alternative innovation systems, alternative public policy and institutional changes. The massive shifts within the agricultural economy in Asia, geared towards increasing production, has had a direct effect on the livelihood of a large mass of people in rural societies, causing financial and social distress. This book explores a wide range of solutions like-the role of education, improving technical skills and human capital, along with interactive learning in R&D, harnessing ICTs and institutional innovations, to see how these problems can be alleviated. The volume looks at how these methods can be used to formulate alternative ways to build sustainable and inclusive agricultural societies and ensure food security, sustainable growth and agricultural productivity.This book, rich in theoretical and empirical matter, will be useful for academics and researchers, interested in agricultural innovation, development studies, and agricultural economics. It will also be of interest to policy makers and think-tanks working towards inclusive social development and sustainability in Asia and the Indian sub-continent.
