Capitalisation of Research Results on the Multifunctionality of Agriculture and Rural Areas

The aim of this proposal is to provide a complete overview of the research that has been done, particularly in Europe, in the different aspects related to Multifunctionality of agriculture. Issues such as equitable regional development, food security and safety, natural resource conservation, rural income generation and global sustainability -explicitly revealed in the Strategy for Sustainable Development as key concern-, are clearly covered by the concept of Multifunctionality of agriculture, and therefore, make part of the analysis of the state-of-the-art proposed by Multagri. By providing a set of recommendations on future research, this proposal will contribute to strengthen the necessary scientific knowledge for the future orientation of the SD strategy and the 6th Environment Action programme.
