Localized Agri-food Systems: Challenges for the new rurality in a changing world

7th International Conference on Localized Agri-food Systems

During the last decades, Localized agri-food systems (SYAL) have become increasingly important as tools for farmers, rural firms and consumers to meet market challenges and satisfy the rising demand for “food with a farmers face”.
