Abstract

Sustainable food production and improved food security are major aim of donors and developing country governments alike. Sustaining food production whilst avoiding environmental degradation require a supportive policy framework and the delivery of appropriate information to facilitate the decision making procedure. Better decision-making provides better early warning, improved judgement of risk and better timing of intervention. Decision Tools for Sustainable Development bring together up-to-date techniques for the collection and management of environmental and socio-economic information. It describes practical decision-making tools for use at all levels from local to international, for rural communities, research services, the food industry and for institutional decision-makers. The book will be essential reading for research managers, development specialists, government policy-makers, NGO staff and all those who need to make sound and effective decisions for the sustainable development of natural resources.
