Key relationships between future challenges and agricultural knowledge, science and technology (AKST) options for action

Year: 2008 Author: IAASTD/Ketill Berger, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The general model has been to continuously innovate, reduce farm gate prices and externalize costs. This model drove the phenomenal achievements of AKST in industrial countries after WWII and the spread of the Green Revolution beginning in the 1960s. But, given the new challenges we confront today, there is increasing recognition within formal S&T organizations that the current AKST model requires revision.
