Distinguished Guest Lecture: Agrarian Challenges in India, 18 February, 11.00 CET

Read more: Distinguished Guest Lecture: Agrarian Challenges in India, 18 February, 11.00 CET
18 Feb 2021

With Madhura Swaminathan

This lecture traces the trajectory of growth of Indian agriculture over the last 5 decades. From the mid 1960s through the 1980s, rapid growth in production and productivity of food grain, rice and wheat, in particular, resulted in big gains in output and reduced dependence on imports to meet domestic consumption requirements. The trajectory has been more uneven in the 1990s and after. The lecture argues that there are huge problems that beset agrarian India, arising out of inequalities across crops, regions and classes.

28 Oct 2020

With Dr Nicky Pouw

Economics should be more about human wellbeing and human-nature relationships than about growth. To address current global problems of rising inequality, climate change, migration and health pandemics requires a fundamental rethink of how we think about the economy and the ways we practice it. Sustainable and inclusive development can only be achieved if we transform our vision of the economy
