Agricultural Sector Sustainability In The Danube Region


  • Marioara RUSU

    (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


In the recent decades, the subject of sustainable development has gained an important place, both in the academic disciplines and political debates. In many countries, particularly in those economically developed, the national strategies for socio-economic development have included sustainable development in their structure. In recent years, in the Danube Region, rural communities have evolved within the limits imposed by their own history and a hesitant transition. An analysis of the main strengths and weaknesses of the agricultural sector from the Danube Region from the sustainability point of view is initiated in this paper. The conclusions following the analysis could be used by decision-makers in the development strategies of the region.
