This Routledge FreeBook highlights some of the major findings that have emerged over the last decade of the STEPS Centre’s research on sustainable agriculture.

Freebook CoverIt draws on four books which address three themes central to understanding how pathways emerge in agriculture, and how sustainability, is or indeed is not, generated. The three themes are: framing (how we understand agriculture and its roles in development), practice (how agriculture and agricultural research is carried out, and by whom) and governance (how agriculture is regulated and controlled).

It includes chapters from 4 books:

  • Contested Agronomy: Agricultural Research in a Changing World
  • Regulating Technology: International Harmonization and Local Realities
  • Governing Agricultural Sustainability: Global Lessons from GM Crops
  • Adapting to Climate Uncertainty in African Agriculture: Narratives and Knowledge Politics

which have not previously been available for open access.

The FreeBook is free to download from the Routledge website (a name and email address is required for access).
