Competition and conflict in Asian agricultural resource management: issues, options, and analytical paradigms

P.L. Pingali, T.R. Paris

Asia today is facing unprecedented changes in the agricultural sector. Rapid urbanization and growing incomes in the NICs are leading to increased competition for agricultural resources. At the same time, changing food habits and diets are leading to a shift in the demand structure of agricultural goods and hence the movement towards diversification. Increased commercialization of agriculture and the rising opportunity cost of labor lead to permanent changes in household labor allocation and gender roles.
