Book Description :

In a time of great agricultural and rural change, the notion of 'multifunctionality' has remained under-theorized and poorly linked to the debates in the social sciences. This book analyses the extent to which the proposed transition towards post-productivist agriculture holds up to scientific scrutiny, and proposes a new transition theory.

Book Description :

In a world increasingly challenged by the need to integrate and understand highly specialized knowledge in a multidisciplinary way, this book is innovative and perhaps unique in addressing this challenge. It focuses on ideas, strategies, techniques and practices spanning many disciplines at the interface of agriculture with: forestry, horticulture, plant physiology, genetics, ecology, soil science, food science, economics, and the social and environmental sciences as delivered by intensified and enriched agroforestry. Multifunctional Agriculture addresses this complexity, using case studies and insights from the needs of African farmers whose livelihoods are constrained by complex interactions between social, environmental and economic factors and problems underlying agricultural sustainability in Africa. This book, therefore, provides an important resource for those trying to understand the role of agriculture in the achievement of the new Sustainable Development Goals by providing easily implementable, practical and effective methodologies and practices. Provides a single-source, comprehensive insight into agroforestry/ multifunctional agriculture, it's potential, challenges, and progress Helps readers understand and assess potential opportunity through implementation Includes case studies and real-world insights that address common situations and the practical application of best practices Explores the role of multi-functional agriculture in mitigating climate change impacts, providing value-story beyond crop production

Book Description :

Throughout history, agriculture has played an essential role in the development of rural areas. Thus, despite the fact that over the past few decades, its role as an economic activity has been severely depleted, it continues to be of great importance for rural development, although its role must be radically reformulated. While agriculture is no longer the main source of employment in rural areas, farmers are looking to diversify from their traditional role as food producers by also providing non-commodity goods to society, such as landscape, nature, employment, rural viability, animal welfare, and so on. Public support is increasingly more oriented towards farms which are taking on this multifunctional role. This causes an important change in farm systems and practices requiring a broadening into new activities, an improvement in quality or value for money, or a regrounding (for example, addressing environmental concerns). To cope with such reorientation, farmers require the assistance of extension officers, sociologists and economists. This book brings together such experts to investigate what this reorientation of agriculture means in practice, how it responds to the needs of society, how it can be implemented through legislation and public policies, and how far this gives new opportunities for non-competitive or even marginal farms.

Book Description :

Organic farming aims to produce a number of crops, without the use of synthetic chemicals (pesticides) or fertilizers, while enhancing soil composition and promoting biodiversity. This is a traditional, more permanent type of farming that relies on ecosystem services to maintain the integrity of the landscape while still producing sufficient yields. In addition, conventional farming uses pesticides and fertilizers to maximize the yield of a particular crop or set of crops, which are typically genetically modified. This book covers several issues related to the multi-functionality and impacts of organic and conventional farming systems. Chapters cover topics related to organic farming and the economy, farm management, and innovative methods and approaches.

Book Description :

This volume is the result of research and exchange activities within the European Network of Agricultural and Rural Policy Research Institutes (ENARPRI). It synthesizes various analyses related to EU agricultural policies, trade agreements, and the issue of multifunctionality. The book focuses on the impact of regional, bilateral, and multilateral trade agreements that the EU has concluded or is in the process of negotiating, as well as on the interaction between EU policies and trade agreements, in the context of multifunctionality and sustainable development.Most of the trade agreements examined are extremely complex and impact not only efficiency and growth, but also income and welfare distribution within the EU. Special attention is given to the effects of possible WTO negotiation outcomes on the EU and third countries, as well as on the impact of the EuroMed trade proposals and agreements on trade flows and economic development of the EU's trading partners in the Mediterranean.

Book Description :

Multifunctional agriculture first received wide attention in 1998, when Japan, South Korea, and the European Union used the term to describe the multiple environmental and social benefits derived from agriculture. However, it is developing countries that have a comparative advantage in multifunctional agriculture, as it tends to be dominated by small-holder farming, low external inputs, ecologically sustainable production, family labour and in tune with local conditions. Recently, critical food security issues and rising food prices have brought the concepts of multifunctional agriculture, food sovereignty, and socio-economic and ecological sustainability to the forefront of agricultural policy. The United Nations Environment Programme's Global Green New Deal has noted that the current state of agricultural policies distorts agricultural profitability to the disadvantage of sustainable farming, and argues for a new incentive system of subsidies, taxes and regulations that encourage environmentally responsible behaviour in agriculture. In addition, increasing awareness is prompting consumers to demand organic, ecological and locally produced products for their benefits to health, rural vitality, environment, biodiversity and other related factors. This book comes at an important time in the development of agricultural policies especially in developing nations. It contains 23 chapters dealing with a broad spectrum of multifunctional agriculture issues, authored by leading experts and researchers in the field. It can be considered as a scholarly reference work for libraries and researchers across the world and as a supplementary text for courses in development, agricultural, resource and environmental economics.

Book Description :

The increasing demand for rural land and its natural resources is creating competition and conflicts. Many interested parties, including farmers, nature conservationists, rural residents and tourists, compete for the same space. Especially in densely populated areas, agriculture, recreation, urban and suburban growth and infrastructure development exert a constant pressure on rural areas. Because land is a finite resource, spatial policies which are formulated and implemented to increase the area allocated to one use imply a decrease in land available for other uses. As a result, at many locations, multi-purpose land use is becoming increasingly important. This notion of multi-purpose land use is reflected in the term 'multifunctionality'. This volume provides insights into viable strategies of sustainable management practices allowing multiple functions sustained by agriculture and natural resources in rural areas. It shows how the rural economy and policies can balance and cope with these competing demands and includes numerous case studies from Europe, North America and developing countries.

Book Description :

​This publication provides insight into the agricultural sector. It illustrates new tendencies in agricultural economics and dynamics (interrelationship with other sectors in rural zones and multifunctionality) and the implications of the World Trade Organization negotiations in the international trade of agricultural products. Due to environmental problems, availability of budget, consumer preferences for food safety and pressure from the World Trade Organization, there are many changes in the agricultural sector. This book addresses those new developments and provides insights into possible future developments. The agricultural activity is an economic sector that is fundamental for a sustainable economic growth of every country. However, this sector has many particularities, namely those related with some structural problems (many farms with reduced dimension, sometimes lack of vocational training of the farmers, difficulties of put the farmers together in associations and cooperatives), variations of the productions and prices over the year and some environmental problems derived from the utilization of pesticides and fertilizers.

Book Description :

The debate on the future orientation of the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is increasingly shaped by the role of agriculture in providing public goods, and there is a broad consensus that this approach will be particularly relevant in legitimating the policy intervention in agriculture in the future. In the context of this debate, it is not clear to what extent collective action could be taken into consideration as a valuable alternative to market or state regulation in contributing to the provision of public goods, and to what extent it is possible to design and implement agricultural policies that incorporate a collective and collaborative approach between different stakeholders in rural areas. Through an in depth analysis two case studies in Italy, the book provides insights to both the policy and the theoretical debate on the role of collective action for the public goods associated to agriculture. ​
