Abstract: Many farmers across the developing world cultivate marginalized and degraded land. Such land is often of low productivity. This means that the people who depend upon it are very vulnerable to food scarcity and famine. Boosting the productivity of such land is therefore a key strategy for improving the livelihoods of the rural poor.
Description: This policy brief is based on SANDEE working paper no. 13-05, "Land-use strategies, economic options and stakeholder preferences : a study of tribal communities in forest peripheries"
