Natural resources - agricultural potential

Year: 2008 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Soils underpin the production of a wide range of agricultural and industrial goods and services. Soil productivity is essential to agricultural activities - for food security, cash income and supporting the livelihoods of the poor. Agriculture is the major engine of economic growth in a majority of developing countries – for instance low income developing countries have a high share of agriculture in gross domestic product. This map presents a potential agricultural output from cereals, provided proper support in equipment, seeds, practices and irrigation. The map is a part of a set, presenting different natural resources, with a focus on developing countries, and the use of natural resources for economic growth and poverty alleviation.
