  • Climate Change and the ‘New Green Revolution’ in India
  • Marcus Taylor (Queen’s University, Canada)
  • Rural India is repeatedly argued to be in the midst of a social crisis as manifested in indicators of household indebtedness, farmer suicides, poor nutrition and food insecurity.  Such issues are amplified in the context of stark environmental challenges, including groundwater depletion, land degradation and climate change-induced droughts and floods.

  • The Oxford Handbook of the Ethiopian Economy
  • Professor Christopher Cramer (SOAS), Dr Tesfachew Taferre (UNCTAD), Dr Carlos Oya (SOAS), Dr Florian Schäfer (LSE)
  • The Oxford Handbook focuses on structural transformation to understand Ethiopia's unique model of development. From both academic and professional standpoints, this volume is a key reference work on the economy of Ethiopia and how the lessons learned can be applied to Africa more broadly.

    Join us for the book launch and discussion with some of the key authors.
