Stepping stones towards sustainable agriculture in China

Andreas Wilkes, Lanying Zhang

Book/Report, 56 pages

In only a few decades, agriculture in China has evolved from a diverse “agriculture without waste” to one involving specialised, high-external input, resource-intensive, commercially-oriented models.

This report charts this evolution, with a focus on sustainability – economic, environmental and social. It asks how China’s modern development is affecting sustainability in farming and the rural
environment, and looks in detail at the influence of policies and measures to transform agricultural production systems in more sustainable ways.

The report concludes by considering some of the challenges and opportunities that could shape sustainable agriculture in China in the future.
