Structural Volatility Of The Rural Systems. Case Study: South-Muntenia Region


  • Sorinel Ionel BUCUR

    () (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


Located on the third place in terms of size among the eight development regions of Romania, the region South-Muntenia consists of seven counties, featuring high heterogeneity from the point of view of their characteristics and also from the perspective of their rural system volatility. Based on these considerations, this approach aims at highlighting the volatility of rural systems at regional level in terms of identifying sustainable local development alternatives. Taking into account the different evolution rate of the local rural systems, we consider the intervention of policy makers as opportune, both in terms of shaping the strategic regional development priorities and mainly in terms of the effective collaboration with the local authorities in order to identify the activities generating gross value added in the rural area.
