A New Framework for Evaluating Agrarian Development

A New Framework for Evaluating Agrarian Development

This ambitious project will build the Cornell Indicator of Agrarian Development, a shared framework for assessing rural development. Crucial for state agencies, development organizations, social movements, and private investors, the tool will incorporate data from existing databases and new research to weigh central indicators of development, well-being, and environmental health in agrarian societies: sustainability, security, sustenance, and sovereignty.
