This Topical Collection of the journal focuses on the intersection of agricultural economics and natural resources, with a particular emphasis on growth. This topic is of increasing importance given the global population growth, urbanization, and changing consumption patterns, which all have profound implications for natural resource use and agricultural production. The Issue seeks to publish original research that contributes to our understanding of these complex issues, with an emphasis on both farm-level and policy-relevant analyses.
Papers in this issue may address a wide range of topics, such as the economics of resource use, the impact of climate change on agricultural production, the role of technological change in agricultural productivity, the economics of ecosystem services, productivity, and efficiency in agriculture and natural resource use, the impact of trade liberalization on agricultural and natural resource use, and the role of institutions in promoting sustainable agricultural and natural resource use. The issue is highly interested in papers that will investigate these issues during COVID-19.
Given the interdisciplinary nature of the topic, papers may use a variety of methods and approaches, including econometric analysis, modeling, case studies, and theoretical analysis. The section welcomes both quantitative and qualitative research, provided that the papers make a significant contribution to the literature and have clear policy implications.
Authors are encouraged to submit original research that advances our understanding of the complex relationship between agriculture and natural resources, and that provides insights for policymakers and practitioners working in the field. The issue is particularly interested in papers that address questions of sustainability, equity, and resilience, and that explore the trade-offs and synergies between different policy objectives.
Overall, the Topical Collection of the journal provides a valuable opportunity for researchers to showcase their work on the intersection of agricultural economics and natural resources. The papers published in this section will contribute to the growing body of literature on this topic and provide insights for policymakers and practitioners working in the field.
