      Although conceptually simple and often idealized, disentangling crop–livestock interactions typically proves more complex in practice. Part of the complexity arises from their changing nature along agricultural intensification gradients. Such interactions increase in scope when extensive systems intensify, but decline in importance as already intermediate systems Cited by: One of the key features of agricultural development in the last five decades has been intensive groundwater use in the Indo-Gangetic Basin (Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh) and in the Yellow River Basin (China). Groundwater irrigates almost 60% .

The study develops and contrasts different asset-based proxies building on the five livelihood capitals: natural, physical, human. Poverty maps are an increasingly popular mode of visualizing the spatial dimension of poverty.

They help guide priority-setting and target poverty-alleviation interventions. The utility of poverty maps can be enhanced by spatially disaggregating the underlying causes of poverty. One promising approach explored in this paper is the use of livelihood assets - natural, physical, Cited by: rice-wheat systems in the Indo-Gangetic Plains.
