Project description

This project wants to further develop, adapt and test a proven methodology for the assessment of sustainability performance. The methodology is based on the analysis of sustainable value and tries to relate farm performance to the use of different forms of capital (physical, environmental, ecological, human, and social). The project aims at adapting the methodology for application at farm, sector, regional and cross-national level, by combining it with efficiency analysis methods for benchmarking and with policy models.
