Compared to neighboring countries, it is still lacking in its basic infrastructure and its administrative and technical skills. In addition, with the onset of the War in Yugoslavia in 1992 most investment and normal maintenance came to a standstill.

    More than three times as much carbon is stored in soils across the world as it is in the atmosphere, making them one of the most important global carbon sinks. Therefore, processes impacting on the soil in which carbon is released, such as deforestation or agricultural activities, significantly contribute to climate change. The debate on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural activities and their consideration in the international climate negotiations has brought soils as carbon reservoirs more to the public eye.

    The World Bank Group has a unique
    opportunity to match the increases in financing for
    agriculture with a sharper focus on improving agricultural
    growth and productivity in agriculture-based economies,
    notably in Sub-Saharan Africa. Greater effort will be needed
    to connect sectoral interventions and achieve synergies from
    public and private sector interventions; to build capacity
    and knowledge exchange; to take stock of experience in

    Interest in farmland is rising. And,
    given commodity price volatility, growing human and
    environmental pressures, and worries about food security,
    this interest will increase, especially in the developing
    world. One of the highest development priorities in the
    world must be to improve smallholder agricultural
    productivity, especially in Africa. Smallholder productivity
    is essential for reducing poverty and hunger, and more and

    Rice is the world’s most heavily
    consumed staple crop. Its production requires enormous
    volumes of water and emits large quantities of atmospheric
    methane, a greenhouse gas some many times more powerful than
    carbon dioxide - particularly during a medium term period of
    about seven years. In a global context of growing
    population, increasingly scarce water resources, and climate
    change, more productive, sustainable, and efficient rice
