Concepts and definitions of multifunctionality in Swiss agricultural policy and research
Koncepcje i definicje wielofunkcyjności w szwajcarskiej polityce rolnej i badaniach
Abstract: Despite the fact that multifunctionality and sustainability are guiding principles of Swiss agricultural policy, the number of contributions from Swiss academics to the literature on multifunctionality is small. However, the quality of these contributions is quite high, as they generally address the comprehensiveness of the concept as well as the context in which agricul-ture is positioned. Moreover, the review of existing literature reveals a lack of analyses that inves-tigate the relationship between the concepts of multifunctionality and sustainability, or sustainable development.
