Sustainable Agriculture as an E-Cube Approach to Alleviating the Urban and Rural Poverty Problem

This paper defines E3 or E-cube (Efficient x Equitable x Environmental-Friendly) as an equivalent way of viewing sustainable shared growth. It provides a preliminary survey of studies which show that sustainable agriculture could be considered as a feasible alternative to conventional agriculture. In particular, these studies support the following theses: that sustainable agriculture could be as efficient if not more efficient than conventional agriculture, that sustainable agriculture could be more equitable than conventional agriculture when the former is targeted towards the rural poor; that sustainable agriculture could be more environmentally-friendly than conventional agriculture given the former’s tendency to significantly reduce the use of agro-chemical inputs, irrigation, and fossilized fuels, and to promote biodiversity. Based on the premise that urban poverty could be traced in no small measure to migration from the rural sector, particularly the rural poor, the promotion of sustainable could be considered as one way to alleviate the urban poverty problem, when sustainable agriculture presents to the rural poor a viable alternative to the migration strategy.
