The exploitation of quality agri-food products is a central theme in the process of rural development for marginal territories, due to the strong implications they have in terms of positive externalities.

Abstract

The exploitation of quality agri-food products is a central theme in the process of rural development for marginal territories, due to the strong implications they have in terms of positive externalities. In the field of rural policy actions, various measures have been directed at facilitating the distribution and consumption of these productions, for which demand is growing for social and economic reasons. This study intends to examine a measure of the Rural Development Programme 2007-2013 (sub-measure 321/A1) dedicated to building structures equipped for commercial services destined for market areas, for the commercialisation of typical and local products. The analysis of this measure, in relation to a specific Local Action Group selected as a case study, has enabled the examination of the type of governance adopted for the implementation of paths of regional development that can contribute to the strengthening of a network of relationships functional to the conservation-reproduction of local resources, and to the increasing of the territory’s capacity of resilience.
