QA - Rivista dell'Associazione Rossi-Doria, 2009, issue 1

Abstract: The World Development Report 2008 was a call for better use to be made of agriculture for development. The urgency of the call has been enhanced by the food crisis. Will governments and international development agencies hear the call and stop turning their backs on agriculture? What will it take for agriculture to be effectively used for development and to address the many crisis that have brought it into the headlines? It is the objective of this article to raise these questions and discuss the answers.
