Abstract

Agriculture should help sustainable development of territories. Rural development and multi-functionality in agriculture help to reconcile profit orientation, business orientation, territorial identity, creation of social value and benefits for communities driving strategic, productive and organizational choices of rural entrepreneurs. Today, rural development policies should contribute to support the sustainability of the EU's farm sector and rural areas retaining the long-term strategic objectives in terms of competitiveness of agriculture, ensuring the sustainable management of natural resources and climate action and the balanced territorial development of rural areas. European rural development policies lead to new entrepreneurial ventures and hybrid organizations managing multiple and different logics combining commercial, profit and social dimension coherently with an evolving path following different trajectories of development concerning alternative policy paradigms for agriculture, rural areas and countryside.
