Rural development through governance of multifunctional agricultural land-use

Project: ResearchInternational collaboration


MULTAGRI aims at identifying relevant spatial scales for managing ecosystem services in agricultural landscapes. We will specifically look at mechanisms for how to promote ecosystem services that benefit both agricultural production (i.e. increase yields) and public goods (e.g. nutrient retention or recreation). Finally, we will evaluate how payments for public goods and ecosystem services and existing governance structures affect agricultural development, and whether European agricultural policies have the potential to result in suitable management actions.

We hope that results generated from the MULTAGRI project will contribute to the development of European policies to promote multifunctional agricultural landscapes and rural development.
