About this book

Analysis of the state of environmental degradation, overpopulation, and poverty, and the way in which it is essential that agricultural research is stepped up, in both North and South, to face these problems. Currently progress in managing the world's natural resources in ways which are sustainable is too slow or limited, and the increased knowledge needed, it is argued here, can only come from a global network of agricultural research.


The eye of the beholder; a plethora of people; poverty; feast or famine?; life-support systems; learning from history; lifeline to the future; better plants and animals; genetic engineering; a better environment; better management; who benefits?; who pays?; dear minister.
