Conclusiones clave:

  • The 'Territorial Rural Development' paradigm is conceived as a simultaneous process of productive transformation and institutional change, with the final goal of reducing poverty and inequality in rural territories.
  • Sound institutional governance and sustainable environmental management at the local level are key.
  • The so-called ‘key dimensions’ to Territorial Rural Development - natural resource management, linkages with dynamic markets, the role of urban centres and public investment, and the importance of social coalitions - have been studied by Latin American researchers and integrated into public policy with the aim of establishing the conditions necessary to ensure the viability of small-scale agriculture.
  • Territorial development policies and ‘location-based policies’ are not only justifiable but a necessary component of development strategies.
