Hyderabad, Jan 18 (UNI) Bharti Institute of Public Policy (BIPP) of Indian School of Business (ISB), Executive Director Ashwini Chhatre has said the outcomes of agriculture policies have much broader implications for society than just the incomes of farmers.
In his welcome address at the 2nd National Symposium on Agriculturewhich began at ISB here on Friday, Prof Chhatre said agriculture policies impact health and nutrition as well as sustainable use of resources like land, soil, water, and energy, and therefore the welfare of future generations.
