Agricultural Development: New Perspectives in a Changing World is the first comprehensive exploration of key emerging issues facing developing-country agriculture today, from rapid urbanization to rural transformation to climate change. In this four-part volume, top experts offer the latest research in the field of agricultural development. Using new lenses to examine today’s biggest challenges, contributors address topics such as nutrition and health, gender and household decision-making, agrifood value chains, natural resource management, and political economy.
Many development agencies are designing and implementing socially-inclusive agricultural interventions at the level of the value chain—covering multiple stages and different types of actors. Monitoring and evaluating the success of these value chain interventions require tools that can track the empowerment of and identify the constraints facing the women and men who participate across multiple stages of the value chain.
