Presentations/Présentations : The territorial approach in agricultural and rural policies. An International Review

Source: INEA.
Rome, November 4-5, 2010. "The territorial approach to rural policies is receiving a growing consensus in many countries. Recently, the European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Dacian Ciolo, announced that one of the most important future challenges for the EU agricultural policy will be strengthening a territorial approach."

"Promoted by European Community policies, the approach achieved more interest in many other countries. The OECD in particular highlighted how much these experiences were recurrent, even in different areas, till the point to consider developing a “new rural paradigm”.

On their side, networks as RIMISP (Latin American Center for Rural Development) enabled these experiences to emerge in many different Latin American countries through designing and implementing territorial research projects."
