Soil Productivity and Pro‐Poor Growth
Abstract:This chapter and the next, on water security and pro‐poor growth, are fundamentally different from the others in that they do not concern natural resources which can provide direct sources of income, but rather resources that underpin the production of a wide range of agricultural and industrial goods and services. The contribution of soil and water resources to pro‐poor growth is indirect. It can only be derived from the importance of the many sectors that rely directly on soil and water productivity as inputs, in particular into agriculture.
