Project description

The starting point of this project is that multifunctional agriculture can be an instrument to realize sustainability objectives. It focuses on optimal systems to validate non-commodity outputs of agricultural activities. Two issues will be further explored: (i) cooperation between farmers and actors from other sectors (partnerships) and (ii) alternative systems to finance public goods and services by agriculture.
