The study draws on a unique household panel, covering the period up to eight years after the implementation of the reform.

Global food demand is increasing rapidly, as are the environmental impacts of agricultural expansion. Here, we project global demand for crop production in 2050 and evaluate the environmental impacts of alternative ways that this demand might be met. We find that per capita demand for crops, when measured as caloric or protein content of all crops combined, has been a similarly increasing function of per capita real income since 1960. This relationship forecasts a 100–110% increase in global crop demand from 2005 to 2050.

Le Sud-Kivu est l’une de 11 provinces de la République démocratique du Congo qui a connu une série de guerres à répétition.
