  1. Rural 21 (engl. Ausgabe 3/2012)
    Focus 3/2012: Organic farming
    Is organic agriculture, which does not seek output maximisation, able to feed a growing world population, or will it always remain a fine but small niche? Can smallholders in the South achieve stable incomes by converting to organic production? Or is it possibly even grossly negligent to entice them to join the markets – doubtlessly expanding – for organic food as they may never actually be able to enter them due to the high quality standards and entry costs? While our authors do not have simple answers to these questions, they are very instructive. Erfahren Sie mehr

  2. Rural 21 (engl. Ausgabe 2/2012)
    Focus 2/2012: Cooperatives
    The cooperative model has been sidelined for many years now in development cooperation – for various reasons: On the one hand, cooperatives have been completely overestimated as an instrument and were expected to solve a whole bunch of problems at one stroke. On the other hand, they were long misused for state purposes and therefore regarded with mistrust. The fact that the United Nations has declared 2012 as the International Year of Cooperatives is a good opportunity to take a closer look at this special form of enterprise. In this issue of Rural 21, we wish to give you an idea of the range of manifestations that the cooperative model has taken worldwide and of the role cooperatives can play in overcoming rural poverty.

  3. Rural 21 (engl. Ausgabe 5/2011)
    Focus 5/2011: Price trends on world agricultural markets
    Just three years after the 2007/2008 food price crisis, prices for staple foods and agricultural commodities are on the rise again. There is cause for concern about food security. The authors in this issue of Rural 21 have explored the following questions: What are the reasons for the new price increases? How are affected countries and the international community of states reacting to it? How can future food (price) crises be prevented? Erfahren Sie mehr

  4. Rural 21 (engl. Ausgabe 4/2011)
    Focus 4/2011: Sustainable tourism
    More than 220 million people – that is seven percent of the world’s working population – make a living in the tourism sector, and every day, around three billion US dollars is earned here. Thus the travel industry is contributing more than ten percent of the global gross national product. Even though a major share of this money remains in the industrialised countries (more than half of all international travels take part in Europe), the branch plays a considerable role in the countries of the South: For every third developing country, tourism is the principal source of foreign exchange; for just under half of the Least Developed Countries, tourism is among the top three sources of export earnings.

  5. Rural 21 (engl. Ausgabe 3/2011)
    Focus 3/2011: Food security initiatives – a quality check
    The global food price crisis in 2007/2008 shook the world. The issue of food security and hunger has again acquired top priority, and so has headed the agenda at the G8 and G20 summits for the last three years. Numerous initiatives have been set in motion and the international community has been urged to develop an action plan for global food security. There have been demands for the United Nations to reform its Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and to revive the Committee for Food Security, giving it new, more effective functions.

  6. Rural 21 (engl. Ausgabe 2/2011)
    Focus 2/2011: Responsible use of forests
    The forests of our globe play a major role in protecting the climate and the environment. They are both an important natural source of energy and resource for innumerable wood products and home to an immense biodiversity. For decades now, warnings have been issued against uncontrolled logging and its disastrous impacts particularly in the Brazilian Amazon, in south-east Asia and central Africa. How can humankind sustainably exploit the forests and at the same time protect and preserve them? This focus issue of Rural 21 provides some answers. Erfahren Sie mehr

  7. Rural 21 (engl. Ausgabe 1/2011)
    Focus 1/2011: People on the move
    Since 2008, it is estimated, for the first time in history, over half of the world’s population has been living in urban centres. What are the consequences? What does this mean for the rural regions and those staying at home? What are the impacts on agricultural production and food security? In addition to facts and figures on international trends, our focus in this edition illustrates the intricate links between migration and demographic change, tradition and modernity, cities and urban regions.

  8. Rural 21 (engl. Ausgabe 6/2010)
    Focus 6/2010: Energy and climate change
    Energy poverty is always a prime component of poverty in developing countries, as the former head of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), Prof. Klaus Töpfer, never tires of emphasising. But what form can future energy production take if it is to contribute to poverty reduction but must do so without damaging sensitive ecosystems and accelerating climate change? The contributors to this issue of Rural 21 shed light on such questions. Erfahren Sie mehr

    Focus 5/2010: Rural Development and Global Partnerships
    Promoting rural areas and agricultural production have returned to the front stage of international development policy. Following years of neglect, political decision makers have come to accept that without modern agriculture it is impossible to ensure food security or reduce poverty. The articles in this issue focus on new strategies in bilateral and multilateral development policy and the new role of the Global Partnership for Food and Agriculture Erfahren Sie mehr
