Présentation de l'éditeur : Agriculture in whatever age, under whatever natural, economic and social conditions, has to feed the human being. To fulfil this mission, the sector has to overcome continuous and changing challenges to achieve notable developments. The Green Revolution, through developing and introducing high-yielding crop varieties and advanced crop management techniques, saved billions people from starvation. The advent of biotechnology, in its turn, has speed up the agricultural growth to meet food demands of the world's booming population. Continuous demographic pressure and rapid market integration have created necessity to further agricultural developments to meet not only food security, but also the increased demands for nutrition security, food safety, energy, etc., while the global climate change has created needs for capturing synergies between agricultural production and environmental protection. New breakthroughs to trigger the second Green Revolution have therefore become necessary. Thus, it is now the right time for us to consider the means to make "the Double-Green Revolution" to become a reality. Conservation Agriculture (CA) has demonstrated potential to meet this goal through designing and promoting the adoption of environment-sound and climate-resilient agricultural production systems. Increasing interests and efforts have been given to CA research for development in the Southeast Asia during the last 15 years. As a result, a new stage has been reached with the formation of the Conservation Agriculture Network for Southeast Asia (CANSEA) in 2009, in which efforts have been maintained to adapt concepts of CA to small scale farmers dealing with a great diversity of climate, land, topography and economy conditions. Enormous inputs are needed for the Southeast Asia to design specific and diverse CA innovations appropriate for local farmers and to promote their large scale adoption. This requires involvement of a wide range of stakeholders from both private and public sectors. This is the reason for us to gather together at the 3rd International Conference on Conservation Agriculture in Southeast Asia. At this conference, the results of a tremendous amount of creative work dedicated to CA development worldwide will be presented. The methods and tools for designing relevant CA innovations and the experience and proposals for their adoption will be shared. This volume compiles a picture portfolio of abstracts selected through a peerreview process for oral and poster presentations at the conference. Main topics addressed in this volume include (1) Agrarian transitions in the Southeast Asian uplands and highlands; (2) Impacts of agricultural systems on agricultural ecosystem sustainability; (3) Farming and cropping system design to sustainably intensify production; (4) Synergizing concepts of CA and Agroforestry; (5) Potentials and constraints of CA for rural development, and (6) Conditions, strategies, barriers and opportunities for scaling-up CA. This compilation represents a state and the art of CA research for development worldwide and the possible applications for the Southeast Asia...
