About this book

Facing critical economic and social constraints, many Latin American and Caribbean countries are struggling to vitalize their economies and to forge new patterns of development. Development agencies have promoted the export of agricultural products but questions are now arising about the wisdom of the approach. Thrupp argues forcefully for comprehensive changes in agroexport diversfification policies at all levels to avoid or minimize the risks to environmental sustainability.
