I have been, during several previous yearsa technical advisor and member of the academic council overseeing the Social Observatory, Catholic University, Buenos Aires, Argentina. The Social Observatory is a major source of nationwide information on the social situation in Argentina www.
I have several publications books and scholarly articles on matters concerning agriculture, food security, and scientific methodology. My most recent books are: Towards the End of Hunger Lima: I am a senior international consultant, working especially with FAO and ILO, and occasionally with other international organizations, mostly on food security, agricultural information systems, rural vulnerability, and livelihood recovery after crises and disasters.

This book examines the expected impacts of climate change on agriculture and food security in Latin America, and also reviews theoretical and methodological issues concerning such assessment.
Based on the IPCC climate projections, and Based on the IPCC climate projections, and various integrated assessments, it studies the direct effect of climate change including impact of temperature, rainfall, and increased CO2 atmospheric concentrations which generally enhance photosynthesis and yields, and in some crops economize water.

It also discusses the accompanying expected response of malftta via changes in crop mix, farming practices and technology. Major sources of integrated assessment are those based on Ricardian econometric models and those based on integrated assessment methods combining several layers of models climate, crops, population, economics.

The world food situation has significantly improved over the latest decades. Fears of an impending global food crisis have largely vanished. Per capita food availability grew at an annual rate of about 0. FAO estimates nearly million people eat insufficient food, below the minimum allowance to maintain good health, and their number has not gone down in recent years in spite of an international pledge to halve it by Persisting hunger is not a result of world food scarcity but unequal access.
Encouragingly, low-income poverty, the chief determinant of access to food, has also declined. The overall prevalence of poverty people with income below a certain poverty line has also decreased.
Hector Maletta – Whither the Amazon forest? A cold look at the impacts of deforestation and climate change more. An assessment of trends and prospects for the Amazon rainforest including impact of deforestation and climate change. Bread of the Future: Does predicted global warming imply more hunger in the future of Latin America?
Such impact estimates use two methods: Ricardian models and Integrated Assessment models. Some connected issues are also briefly discussed: Non climate factors concurrently at play are also explored demographic trends, agrarian changes, income growth and others. Unexpectedly enough, the resulting prospects for agriculture and food are not catastrophic. Whither the Amazon Forest?
The future of the Amazon rainforest is a matter of much concern worldwide. On the one hand, climate change has been said to threaten the forest via possibly increased drought, prompting fires and fragmentation, accelerated by man-made On the one hand, climate change has been said to threaten the forest via possibly increased drought, prompting fires and fragmentation, accelerated by man-made deforestation.
On the other hand, the Amazon forest itself is a major carbon store area, and carbon dioxide release from deforestation or forest degradation may strongly contribute to overall future carbon concentrations in the atmosphere, thus increasing global warming. Some authors have suggested the possibility of a catastrophic savannisation of the forest in a relatively short time due to the combination of several processes.
This paper, based on available data and scientific results, and the climate projections of the Fourth report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCCexamines the evidence about past and current deforestation trends and about impacts upon the Amazon of expected climate changes, and concludes that rates Climate ChangeForestDeforestationand Environment.

This paper analyses historical trends in growth of agricultural production This paper analyses historical trends in growth of agricultural production total and per capita, at world level and for major regions during the half century sinceand the relative contributions to such growth coming from additional land and from increased land productivity, and summarises the latest studies on availability of extra suitable land. On the other hand, land suitable for rain-fed crop production that is not forested, not built-up, not otherwise protected, and not yet cropped, is quite abundant.
However, projections of future agricultural growth, even under very conservative hypotheses, do not envisage much uector in the use of extra land. Available estimates show that agricultural Total Factor Productivity TFP is the dominant factor in agricultural growth, and that growth of agricultural TFP is accelerating.

ABSTRACT This paper reviews the theory of the true cost of living index and its approximation through superlative index numbers, as well as the Vartia quantum theory of bias in index numbers as applied to substitution bias in consumer ABSTRACT This paper reviews the theory of the true cost of living index and its approximation through superlative index numbers, as well as the Vartia quantum theory of bias in index numbers as applied to substitution bias in consumer price indices.
Estimated adjustments are proposed for the Argentine Consumer Price Index on account of consumer substitution, for the period Annual substitution is shown to be a relatively minor proportion of annual inflation, but to accumulate a sizable effect over the years.
The absolute effect varies with the absolute size of annual inflation.
Substitution bias in the CPI is shown to have a strong effect on estimates of the historical inflation record and the PPP exchange rates in the s.
International Food Price Volatility: For food-importing countries affected at the same time by significant levels of undernourishment and malnutrition, sudden For food-importing countries affected at the same time by significant levels of undernourishment and malnutrition, sudden rises in the international price of food may have a strong impact on domestic prices and greatly affect access to food.
Such is the case of two South American countries: Bolivia and Peru, which pursued quite different policies affecting the transmission of international commodity price changes into domestic consumer prices for major food items.
This paper examines policies enacted in both countries at the macroeconomic and sectoral level, and the outcome in terms of domestic prices. Hector Maletta, La Pampa Hector Maletta, La Pampa, Agriculture and Crop Residues.
