New FSE publication examines the impacts, costs, and opportunities for sustainable agriculture in Brazil

In this paper, FSE visiting fellow Luiz Martinelli, along with FSE director Rosamond L. Naylor, Peter Vitousek, and Paulo Moutinho, contrasts the country's agricultural system with its oppressive record of income and land inequalities and environmental degradation. The authors discuss ways to reconcile economic, social, and environmental goals. Brazil faces this challenge and opportunity with other tropical developing countries--and with success, it could become a role model to other nations in Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
