MALUF, Renato S.; BONNAL, Philippe and CAZELLA, Ademir A.. Multifunctionality of agriculture and territorial development: implications and challenges in combining the approaches.Translated byEoin O´Neill. Estud.soc.agric. [online]. 2008, vol.4Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1413-0580.
The paper addresses the relationships between the concepts of multifunctionality of agriculture and territory with the aim of discussing the implications and challenges of uniting the approaches of multi-functionality and territorial development. Its reasoning is based on the results of field research in eight areas or territories located in different regions of the country whose focus was to identify if territorial dynamics and collective projects in these areas take into account family farmers in their multiple functions and social heterogeneity.
