Central planning, national policies and local rural development programmes: the planning process in Latin America and the Caribbean


, : Central planning, national policies and local rural development programmes: the planning process in Latin America and the Caribbean. Rural change, the challenge for agricultural economists Proceedings, Seventeenth International Conference of Agricultural Economists Held at Banff, Canada, 3rd 12th September 1979: 167-186

The paper provides a comprehensive description of the planning process and its problems in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Most of its comments are based on the results of studies carried out by IICA's PROPLAN (Latin American and Caribbean Agricultural Planning and Policy Analysis Project). Most countries were found to rely on a planning unit.

Experiments were conducted to determine how the proportion of a root system in contact with an allelopathic compound may affect seedling responses. Cucumber seedlings grown in a split-root nutrient culture system were given either single (1 mM) or...

The planar rigidized molecule fluorazene (FPP) undergoes fast reversible intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) in the excited state, with a reaction time of 12 ps in the polar solvent ethyl cyanide at -45 degrees C. The ICT state of FPP has a dipol...

The regulation of the vasculature in the skin is a complex process involving both perivascular nerves and local endothelial-mediated control. In this study, the perivascular innervation in the mystacial pad of the rat was characterized based upon...

Accidental arterial cannulation during ultrasound-guided central venous cannulation is rarely reported and should be much less likely with dynamic guidance. Although accidental arterial penetration with the needle may occur periodically without no...

The problem of the nonlinear dielectric response due to the application of a strong electric field is reconsidered in the context of fractional kinetic equations. To accomplish that, we start from a fractional noninertial Fokker-Planck equation an...

Acorn production was measured in individual oaks of 5 different species and compared with 4 prediction hypotheses for the evolution of seed production patterns. The within-year and among-year variance in acorn crop size was smaller and larger than...
