India's Agrarian Structure, Economic Policies and Sustainable Development : Variations on a Theme

 
V.S. Vyas (Author)
Synopsis This book "Agrarian Structure, Economic Policies and Sustainable Development" according to Prof. M.S. Swaminathan "bears testimony to Prof. V.S. Vyas’s approach to the major national and global challenges facing Indian agriculture." Prof. Vyas has tried to probe how the policy interventions, technological changes and institutional developments are impacting the economy of those directly dependent on it for their livelihood. The book covers all major developments in the evolution of agricultural technologies and policies since independence (1947). The essays in the book, divided in five sections, deal with topics which are mutually inter-related and reinforcing. The first section focuses on the relationship between poverty and sustainable development; the second outlines the main features of Indian agriculture, its sources of growth, the changes taking place within the sector and the problems; the third section discusses the issues of poverty and food security not only in India but also in other developing countries of the South-East Asian region; the fourth section analyses economic reforms in India and the possible directions for these reforms; and the last section speculates about the future of Indian agriculture and outlines policy initiatives which can help to improve the productivity, profitability and sustainability of our major farming systems.
