Sustainable agriculture for uplands in Asia: direct vs. preventive contributions of new technology



Sustainable agriculture for uplands in Asia: direct vs. preventive contributions of new technology



CGPRT Publication ( 30): 177-194



The paper first introduces major issues associated with the idea of sustainability. Some of the characteristics of uplands are then described and the theme of resource degradation and unsustainability in upland areas is examined. The links between upland and lowland areas are discussed, with an emphasis on ways in which agricultural development in lowlands can affect processes of resource degradation in the uplands.
