Rural Development, Multifunctionality and Public Goods: An Assessment of the Literature - This study attempts to analyze the various tools available to evaluate the impacts of the Rural Development Policies, particularly regarding the multifunctional role of agriculture. In the first part the economic aspects of multifunctionality are analyzed, summarizing the main issues of the international debate.
