Final Report - PRIMA (Prototypical Policy Impacts on Multifunctional Activities in rural municipalities)

Project ID: 212345
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT

Abstract

Facing structural change, European rural areas still fulfil multiple social, economic and ecological functions. Because of scale interplays and sustainability trade-offs, their future dynamics are still difficult to ascertain. In addition to the inherent difficulties of this undertaking, challenges in actual assessments also depend on external shocks to the economy at large or to particular regions, along with spill-over effects among neighbouring regions.

The PRIMA project proposed to improve knowledge in scaling down this assessment. It focused on agriculture, forestry, tourism, and ecosystem services with special attention to the structural effects of the European policies at municipality levels.

The report provides a summary of the project context and objectives and describes thoroughly the main results and foregrounds accomplished through the six work packages.
