    An extensive review of literature on the
    determinants of adoption and impacts of land management
    technologies in the Ethiopian highlands was undertaken to
    guide policy makers and development agencies in crafting
    programs and policies that can better and more effectively
    address land degradation in Ethiopia. Several
    generalizations emerge from the review: 1) the profitability
    of land management technologies is a very important factor

    Over the past quarter century, Vietnam’s
    agricultural sector has made enormous progress. Vietnam’s
    performance in terms of agricultural yields, output, and
    exports, however, has been more impressive than its gains in
    efficiency, farmer welfare, and product quality. Vietnamese
    agriculture now sits at a turning point. The agricultural
    sector now faces growing domestic competition - from cities,
    industry, and services - for labor, land, and water. Rising

    Increased levels and volatility of food
    prices has led to a surge of interest in large-scale
    agriculture and land acquisition. This creates challenges
    for policy makers aiming to establish a policy environment
    conducive to an agrarian structure to contribute to
    broad-based development in the long term. Based on a
    historical review of episodes of growth of large farms and
    their impact, this paper identifies factors underlying the

    Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa

    An issue which has generated much
    concern has been the potential link between low incomes and
    resource degradation. This report presents the results of a
    study which investigated this question. Machakos District is
    a relatively low income and agriculturally marginal district
    in Kenya. Before World War II the colonial administration
    was concerned that land degradation was becoming severe
    under the pressure of population, aggravated by drought. The

    Bleak short-term economic outlook raises the risk that social and environmental
    achievements may not be sustained. The changed economic circumstances have exposed shortcomings in Brazil’s development model, epitomized by the struggle to achieve a sustainable fiscal policy. Against this background, some Brazilians are now asking whether the gains of the past decade might have been an illusion, created by the commodity boom, but unsustainable in today’s less forgiving international environment. Brazil thus finds itself at an important juncture and, to a certain extent, the policy

    Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka is in many respects a
    development success story. With economic growth averaging
    more than 7 percent a year over the past five years on top
    of an average growth of 6 percent the preceding five years,
    Sri Lanka has made notable strides towards the goals of
    ending extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity (the
    ‘twin goals’). The national poverty headcount rate declined
    from 22.7 to 6.7 percent between 2002 and 2012/13, while

    Costa Rica

    Costa Rica stands out for being among the most politically stable, progressive, prosperous, and environmentally conscious nations in the Latin America and the Caribbean region. Its development model has brought important economic, social, and environmental dividends, with sustained growth, upward mobility for a large share of the population, important gains in social indicators, and significant achievements in reforestation and conservation. However, there are a number of development challenges that need to be addressed to maintain the country’s successful development path.
