Phát hành: 19-05-1988
Published May, 1988
This publication is the result of a combined effort by the Information centre for Low-External Input Agriculture (ILEIA) in The Netherlands and AGRECOL DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION in Switzerland. It aims at facilitating the dissemination of information on sustainable agriculture approaches and at giving people involved in agricultural development in the Third World insights into the need and opportunities for sustainable agricultural development.
Both ILEIA and AGRECOL were active in collecting, exchanging and disseminating information on sustainable agricultural approaches since 1981 and 1983, respectively. In the course of time, both organizations built up a database consulted by people who are committed at a practical level to agricultural development in the tropics.
With the selection of the books we have tried to provide introductions into sustainable agricultural approaches or into aspects of it, without the pretention of completeness. The books are dealing with concepts as well as practical methods and techniques. The selected periodicals are regularly featuring articles on aspects of sustainable agriculture. From the selected organizations further information and documents on applied methods of agriculture for small farmers in developing countries may be obtained.
