About this book

This book is based on the findings of a long-term (2000-2014) interdisciplinary research project of the University of Hohenheim in collaboration with several universities in Thailand and Vietnam. Titled Sustainable Land Use and Rural Development in Mountainous Areas in Southeast Asia, or the Uplands Program, the project aims to contribute through agricultural research to the conservation of natural resources and the improvement of living conditions of the rural population in the mountainous regions of Southeast Asia. Having three objectives the book first aims to give an interdisciplinary account of the drivers, consequences and challenges of ongoing changes in mountainous areas of Southeast Asia. Second, the book describes how innovation processes can contribute to addressing these challenges and third, how knowledge creation to support change in policies and institutions can assist in sustainably develop mountain areas and people’s livelihoods.

Reviews

From the reviews:

 

“This book presents much useful and innovative work for researchers and policy-makers who specialize on physical-science or economic aspects of upland soil, water, and agriculture. … This book is undoubtedly an empirically rich analysis of various aspects of land use constraints and changes occurring in mountainous regions of Southeast Asia, and it updates the literature significantly.” (Tim Forsyth, Mountain Research and Development, Vol. 34 (1), February, 2014)
