Many developed and developing countries have made tourism-oriented economic policies to increase exchange earnings and job opportunities. It is necessary to apply a cautious approach to maximize tourism's economic potential with minimum environmental damages. For this purpose, the local community plays a vital role in achieving sustainable tourism development. The present study is aimed to evaluate the local community's attitudes towards sustainable tourism development in the Didim district of Turkey. A questionnaire-based survey method was used to collect primary data regarding the topic, where 379 participants were selected for the survey. T-test and ANOVA tests of statistics were employed to analyze the data. The results revealed that the local community has very positive attitudes towards tourism development in the region. Education, income, profession, and place of origin were found important influencing factors in perception of local community regarding sustainable tourism development. The findings of the study provide valuable insights for future policy development.</p> Ashfak Ahmad KHAN, Aziz Tuncer Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Innovative Agriculture and Social Development https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://rdpublishers.com/journals/index.php/jiasd/article/view/4 Sat, 12 Mar 2022 00:00:00 +0000 An Analysis of Rural Revitalization from the Perspective of Sharing Economy http://rdpublishers.com/journals/index.php/jiasd/article/view/20 <p>Rural revitalization has been promoted to the national development strategy&nbsp;in China, which shows that the central government attaches great importance to the issue of agriculture, rural areas, and farmers. Relying on the current opportunities for urban-rural resource integration and using the new ideas of the sharing economy, it is possible to explore more modes of implementation of the rural revitalization strategy. At present, China’s rural revitalization is facing the development dilemma of small-scale farmers’ diseconomy of scale, incomplete land reform, and conflicts with urbanization. This paper suggests advancing rural culture and ethics through agricultural specialization and the cultivation of new professional farmers, bringing urban industrial and commercial capital to the countryside and promoting industry integration through the transformation and improvement of the existing rural land system, low-cost land transfer, and de-emphasis of land ownership, achieving integrated urban-rural development through community supported agriculture, building urban and rural communities, and attracting urban intellectual resources, in order to ultimately achieve a modern economic system of rural revitalization with resource sharing.</p> Teng Li, Deyi Zhou Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Innovative Agriculture and Social Development https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://rdpublishers.com/journals/index.php/jiasd/article/view/20 Sun, 13 Mar 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Estimation of water requirement and water use efficiency in typical dairy farms in Bangladesh http://rdpublishers.com/journals/index.php/jiasd/article/view/16 <p>The objective of this study was to estimate the different ways of water use to calculate water use efficiency (WUE) in dairy production system and to identify the main drivers of water use efficiency (WUE) in Bangladesh typical dairy farming system. The International Farm Comparison Network (IFCN) methodology. The IFCN method consists of three pillars: Typical Farm Approach (TFA), Technology Impact Policy Impact Calculations (TIPICAL) model and Networking approach. Using the IFCN panel approach, two typical farms were selected: BD-2 cow farm (Bangladesh 2 cow farm) and BD-14 cow farm (Bangladesh 14 cow farm). These two typical farms were modelled using the IFCN global water footprint model, the water footprint model is built within the TIPICAL model. The results showed that average water requirement for one kg milk production is 2400 liters of which 98% of the water use used through feeds and fodder. About 2% water is used through drinking water and service water. the water use efficiency of BD-2 and BD-14 are 0.22 and 0.26, respectively. Finally, small-scale production farm (BD-2) needs more water requirement/kg of milk as they rear small number of animals with low productivity than large scale typical farming system (BD-14) with high productivity. The finding of this study clearly revealed that increasing milk productivity and effective use of the feeds and fodder are the main ways to be efficient in water use and thus can reduce the pressure on water for milk production.</p> Mohammad Mohi Uddin, Mst.

Evidence from Xingtai City, China http://rdpublishers.com/journals/index.php/jiasd/article/view/22 <p>The development of the vegetable industry is inseparable from the support of policies. At present, the agglomeration of the vegetable industry is continuously optimized, while industrialization and scale are constantly evolving. In order to explore the impact of production support by local government policies on the scale of vegetable planting, and the problems existing in these policies, this research estimates the efficiency of policies production support on vegetable cultivation. To this end, an overviewof the vegetable production policies and measures in the main vegetable-producing areas in Xingtai, Hebei province was conducted. The structural equation model was applied to test the relationship and extent of vegetable production support policies on thevegetable planting scale. Results of the research showed that the production support policy has a positive effect on the degree of vegetable price fluctuation and the scale effect does exist, while the direct effect on the scale planting was not significant. However, the indirect effect of taking the degree of price fluctuation as the intermediary variable was significant. It indicates that production support policies may affect scale through the degree of price fluctuations. Policymakers should improve the policy system, and increase the content of subsidies. Promote cooperation between small-scale farmers and large-scale business entities.</p> Debin Zhang, Lanxin Deng, Shuo Wang Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Innovative Agriculture and Social Development https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://rdpublishers.com/journals/index.php/jiasd/article/view/22 Sun, 13 Mar 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Factors affectingthe entrepreneurial intention levels among the undergraduate studentsinDistrict Faisalabad, Pakistan http://rdpublishers.com/journals/index.php/jiasd/article/view/23 <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p>In many countries, entrepreneurship is seen as an activity to create wealth and is also the best solution to the problem of unemployment in developing countries. However, entrepreneurial careers are not preferred by the younger generation, especially academics. The theoretical frame of this paper is on the base of the theory of planned behavior (TPB) because most of the literature agreed that entrepreneurial intentions are determined by using the theory of planned behavior (TPB). Therefore this study aims to determine the entrepreneurial intentions among undergraduate students and determine the factors that affect their intention. The study design was used a cross-sectional study and we collect the data from the two public universities in the city of Faisalabad of Pakistan. Specifically, these are the University of Agriculture Faisalabad and the Govt. College University of Faisalabad and information was collected from 120 students through well-structured and comprehensive questionnaires by using random sampling. Frequencies, Cronbach’s alpha test, and binary logistic model have been used to analyze the impact of different factors included in the model as Gender, Age, Entrepreneurial Education, Attitude, and Ability, Perceived behavioral control, Subjected norms, and opportunity for entrepreneurial intentions. The result indicates that all the factors are positively influenced the entrepreneurial intentions among students. Although, opportunities and entrepreneur education are strongly contribute to entrepreneurial intentions among students. Based on the outcome of the research Pakistani universities should need to incorporate techniques to facilitate their students in educational programs so that their abilities, as well as their intentions, can be honed. Universities of Pakistan should consider other factors that promote entrepreneurship and awareness of entrepreneurial opportunity among the universities students such as seminars, conferences, and internship programs to enable students to become entrepreneurs. These results are implicit for policymakers.</p> <p> </p> Asbat Arshad, Amna Yousaf Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Innovative Agriculture and Social Development https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://rdpublishers.com/journals/index.php/jiasd/article/view/23 Sun, 13 Mar 2022 00:00:00 +0000
