During the last twenty years, major funding has been made into agriculture-related ordinary source administration study in constructing nations. With traders starting to request the effect in their investments during this learn, a evaluation was once wanted at the monetary, social and environmental results of those initiatives. Stemming from an attempt to deal with those issues, this selection of case stories establishes a methodological beginning for effect tests of NRMR via a dialogue of analysis carried out via the CGIAR world wide. either micro and macro tasks are tested to contemplate the result of those agricultural and improvement courses on the farm point in addition to on a local scale.

Описание: В 1966 году в Национальной библиотеке в Мадриде были обнаружены два манускрипта, написанные Леонардо. Когда-то они не были учтены при каталогизации, и об их существовании не было известно. Этим двум манускриптам дали условные названия «Мадридский кодекс I» и «Мадридский кодекс II».
«Мадридский кодекс I» состоит из 192 листов 1490—1499 годов написания, содержащих изображения различных механизмов и изложения теории механики. Хотя работа и посвящена механике, в ней есть заметки по астрономии и по оптике.
«Мадридский кодекс II» был создан Леонардо в 1503—1505 гг. и состоит из 158 листов. Он собрал исследования в области геометрии, такие, например, как «квадратуры круга». Кроме этого, в нём содержатся работы по перспективе и оптике. В книге можно найти эскизы морских и топографических карт, рассматриваются проблемы военной техники и архитектуры. Самое интересное в этом кодексе — неосуществлённый проект изменения русла реки Арно, эскизы фрески «Битва при Ангиари» и конного памятника Франческо Сфорца.

Late 1980s/early 1990s CGIAR launches an inquiry into the need for further expansion of the number of Centres, so as to strengthen the CGIAR System’s capacity for sustainability-related research. Group decides that agroforestry should be included in the CGIAR research portfolio, and shortly thereafter, irrigation management and aquatic resources. Late 1990s Productivity and NRM are adopted as the twin pillars of research on aquatic resources, conservation of genetic resources (biodiversity), food crops, forestry/agroforestry, livestock, soil and water nutrients, water management and policy research.

Therefore, assessment of the impacts of a new innovation has to take into account the diffusion process. Early empirical studies found the diffusion curve (measuring the fraction of the potential population that actually adopts the technology) to be an S-shaped function of time. Initial studies (Griliches, 1957; Mansfield, 1963) modelled diffusion as a process of imitation and communication among homogeneous units. Griliches’ empirical analysis showed that the parameters of this imitation process are affected by profitability considerations.
