Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands
The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.
Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.
The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.
As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".
All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.
The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.
Planning of the agricultural sector has been neglected in development economies. On this level between macro and project planning, there has been no evident progress either in methodology or in policy-supporting activities of a planning administration. This study aims at demonstrating for a concrete situation in a developing country, Tunisia, how the agricultural sector as a whole should be planned so that there is a talk of usefullness for policy makers. The Tunisian agricultural sector is social economically analysed. The most important problem resulting from this analysis is the poverty and unemployment in rural areas. Then agricultural policy options in the long term, translated into concrete actions. measures and projects are indentified, employment and income distribution taking a central place. Implications of the formulated long-term agricultural development plan for short-term policy and organization of the Tunisian planning administration are indicated. Conclusions on the applicability of the agricultural planning methodology in other developing countries are postulated.
