Transformation, Land Use and Agricultural Development in Eastern Europe: A Country-level Study

The amount of land available in the CEE (Central and Eastern Europe) is vast, and it is important that it should be used in a sustainable manner. However, the political and economic change in these countries only serves to aggrevate longstanding problems associated with land use. This book describes the changing land use patterns in the CEE area along with agricultural transformation issues. It presents detailed information about the types and development of land use in CEE countries over time, primarily from the perspective of economic geography. The authors' goal is to present more information about the CEE and to provide a better understanding of the extent and complexity of the task ahead, if a sustainable agricultural economy is to develop in this part of the world. Some of the data presented was obtained from original sources.
