Carriquiry, Miguel A. et al. [2010-08-01]
Recent increases in production of crop-based (or first-generation) biofuels have engendered increasing concerns over potential conflicts with food supplies and land protection, as well as disputes over greenhouse gas reductions. This has heightened a sense of urgency around the development of biofuels produced from non-food biomass (second-generation biofuels). This study reviews the ec ...

Reducing the Vulnerability of Uzbekistan's Agricultural Systems to Climate Change : Impact Assessment and Adaptation Options
Sutton, William R. et al. [2013-10-03]
Agricultural production is inextricably tied to climate, making agriculture one of the most climate-sensitive of all economic sectors. In countries such as Uzbekistan, the risks of climate change for the agricultural sector are a particularly immediate and important problem because the majority of the rural population depends either directly or indirectly on agriculture for their livelihoods. ...

A Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA) was undertaken to assess the returns to land management practices of major land use types, namely forests, rangelands, and selected crops (rice, maize, cotton, and millet). Also the public expenditure on SLM was reviewed and an assessment carried out how the expenditure is aligned to land policies and how it is targeted to land degradation hotspots. The res ...

Is Increasing Inorganic Fertilizer Use in Sub-Saharan Africa a Profitable Proposition? Evidence from Nigeria
Liverpool-Tasie, Lenis Saweda O. et al. 
Inorganic fertilizer use across Sub-Saharan Africa is generally considered to be low. Yet, this belief is predicated on the assumption that it is profitable to use rates higher than currently observed. However, there is little rigorous empirical evidence to support this notion. Using a nationally representative panel data set, and with due recognition of the role of risk and uncertainty ...
