Format: Paperback
This book has been an invaluable resource to me during my own Ph.D. research linking agriculture to food security. Many of the authors have worked in Afghanistan for many years, and have a good knowledge of the people and terrain. This is an excellent source of information on the natural landscape, farming systems, potential pitfalls in agricultural development, and lessons learned. It is truly a must-have for anyone working in agriculture or food security in Afghanistan.I have met some of the authors and have the highest professional opinion of them. They have risked their lives, some for over 8 years in-country going to remote rural areas, helping with the reconstruction effort.
