This book explores the fundamental determinants of long term changes in agricultural land use and the associated implications for environmental and food security.  The book is designed around the idea that each chapter focuses on one driver, or underlying determinant, of land use change at global scale. It starts with key factors which have been influential in the past, such as growth population, incomes and agricultural productivity, thereafter turning to new drivers such as biofuels, climate change and demand for environmental services. Specialized topics include food security outcomes, projections of future agricultural prices, greenhouse gas emissions, the role of globalization and market integration. The book draws heavily on the emerging body of literature on these topics, summarizes key findings and organizes these within a unifying economic framework.

From the Back Cover:

This book explores the fundamental determinants of sustainability as seen through the lens of  long term changes in agricultural land use and the associated implications for environmental and food security. Each chapter builds part of the global sustainability story by focusing  on one driver, or underlying determinant, of land use change at global scale. It starts with key factors which have been influential in the past, such as growth in population, incomes and agricultural productivity, thereafter turning to new drivers such as biofuels, climate change and demand for environmental services. Specialized topics include food security outcomes, projections of future agricultural prices, greenhouse gas emissions, the role of globalization and market integration. The final chapter integrates all of these elements into a comprehensive analysis of food and environmental security in 2050. The book draws heavily on the emerging body of literature on these topics, summarizes key findings and organizes these within a unifying economic framework.

Review:

“The structure of Global Changes and the Challenges of Sustainably Feeding a Growing Planet makes it most suitable for an interdisciplinary master’s level course that might be co-taught for students in agricultural economics, environmental sciences, agronomy, natural resources, nutrition, and other disciplines. ... The potential audience for this impressive book includes not only economists but a broad range of scientists. It should be required reading for anyone interested in long-run land use, food security, biofuels, and effects of climate change.” (George W. Norton, American Journal of Agricultural Economics, Vol. 98 (5), October, 2016)
