Agriculture and Sustainable Development: Policy Analysis on the Great Plains

By Allen Tyrchniewicz, Art Wilson on October 3, 2001
Sustainability of agriculture on the Great Plains has come under question as a result of developments within and outside the region. This study takes a look at key issues on the Canadian prairies and helps develop a process to review the sustainability concerns.

It provides a framework for evaluation of existing agricultural policy with respect to sustainable agriculture and development. The analysis leads to specific recommendations for change or for action. The analytical framework may be applicable to other similar semi-arid agriculture regions of the world.
