Paolotti and L. RocchiNo 126052, 126th Seminar, June 27-29, 2012, Capri, Italy from European Association of Agricultural EconomistsAbstract:Payments to the agricultural sector are designated to decrease gradually. One of the consequences of such a process will be a reduction in the number of farms and thereby in the defence of territory. The expansion of areas with hydro geological problems is a global matter. During the 2011 the damage caused by disasters around the world cost 380 BILIONS of USD. For the future, it is possible to suppose an increase in extreme events and disasters of hydro geological nature, also because of a reduction in territory protection by agriculture. The objective of this study is to propose an instrument to involve farmers in territory management, but before that disasters happen. We are looking for an ex-ante solution. In the paper, we propose a potential model, that of Territorial Management Contracts (TMC).Keywords: Community/Rural/Urban Development; Environmental Economics and Policy (search for similar items in EconPapers)Date: 2012-06New Economics Papers: this item is included in nep-agr and nep-envReferences: View references in EconPapers View complete reference list from CitEc Citations: Track citations by RSS feedDownloads: (external link) ... -ROCCHI-PAOLOTTI.pdf (application/pdf)Related works:This item may be available elsewhere in EconPapers: Search for items with the same title.Export reference: BibTeX RIS (EndNote, ProCite, RefMan) HTML/TextPersistent link: :ags:eaa126:126052DOI: 10.22004/ag.econ.126052Access Statistics for this paperMore papers in 126th Seminar, June 27-29, 2012, Capri, Italy from European Association of Agricultural Economists Contact information at EDIRC.Bibliographic data for series maintained by AgEcon Search (Obfuscate( 'umn.edu', 'aesearch' )). var addthis_config = "data_track_clickback":true; var addthis_share = url:" :ags:eaa126:126052"Share This site is part of RePEc and all the data displayed here is part of the RePEc data set.
