Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security in an Era of Oil Scarcity: Lessons from Cuba - hardcover

ISBN: 1844075729

[SR: 3543609], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781844075720], Routledge, Routledge, Book, [PU: Routledge], Routledge, When other nations are forced to rethink their agricultural and food security strategies in light of the post-peak oil debate, they only have one living example to draw from: that of Cuba in the 1990s. Based on the first and - up till now - only systematic and empirical study to come out of Cuba on this topic, this book examines how the nation successfully headed off its own food crisis after the dissolution of the Soviet Bloc in the early 1990s. The author identifies the policies and practices required for such an achievement under conditions of petroleum-scarcity and in doing so, challenges the mainstream globalized and privatized food systems and food security strategies being driven through in both industrialized and more vulnerable developing regions. Paradoxically, the book dispels the myth that Cuba turned to organic farming nationwide, a myth founded on the success of Cuba's urban organic production systems which visitors to the country are most commonly exposed to. In rural regions, where the author had unique access, industrialized high-input and integrated agriculture is aspired to for the majority of domestic production, despite the ongoing fluctuations in availability of agrochemicals and fuel. By identifying the challenges faced by Cuban institutions and individuals in de-industrializing their food and farming systems, this book provides crucial learning material for the current fledgling attempts at developing energy descent plans and at mainstreaming more organic food systems in industrialized nations. It also informs international policy on sustainable agriculture and food security for less-industrialized countries., 268160, Economic Policy & Development, 268153, Economics, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 268166, Development, 268164, International Economics, 268153, Economics, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 268290, Management, 659904, Balanced Scorecard, 268302, Budgeting & Finance, 659902, Business Process Reengineering, 659908, Call Centre Management, 659906, Change Management, 659910, Distribution, 659912, Human Resources, 268305, Information Management, 659926, Knowledge Management, 268098, Management Accounting, 268295, Management Science, 659930, Management Skills, 268306, Office Management, 268296, Operational Research, 268297, Organisational Theory & Behaviour, 268308, Production & Quality Control, 268298, Project Management, 268309, Purchasing & Supply, 268299, Quality Assurance & Total Quality Management, 268321, Sales & Marketing Management, 659964, Six Sigma, 268150, Strategy, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 268179, Professional Finance, 659892, Audits & Auditing, 268180, Banking, 659982, Budgeting, 268181, Corporate, 659984, Forecasting, 659986, Foreign Exchange, 268183, Insurance, 659992, International Finance, 268194, Investments & Securities, 268216, Public, 659994, Purchasing & Procurement, 659996, Risk Management, 659998, Taxation, 660000, Venture Capital, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276419, Industrial Archaeology, 276416, Archaeology, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278202, Industrial Chemistry, 922268, Chemical, 278115, Engineering & Technology, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278181, Alternative Energy, 278180, Energy Technology, 278115, Engineering & Technology, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 277864, Agricultural Science, 277859, Food & Farming, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 571052, Energy Engineering, 564346, Engineering, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 496660, Developmental Studies, 496654, Human Geography, 276411, Social Sciences, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
