This paper sets out the various aspects of Agricultural  Sustainable Intensification that is most relevant to the work of BioSight, and puts it within the context of how other researchers and development stakeholders think about the issue and the key socio-economic and environmental dimensions that matter. In order to provide an analytical framework that could be useful in supporting country-level decision makers assess the tradeoffs around the intensification of agriculture, the paper proposes a set of indicators and uses an analytic example to show how BioSight and its partners can use them to evaluate the policy options and their implications, within a developing country context.
