Abstract

The creation of non-farm jobs in rural areas is one of the key challenges of rural development policy of Poland. Socio-economic processes in the Polish rural areas result in shaping the rural economy in which the role of agriculture diminishes in terms of share in both GDP and employment. New economic functions do not replace the “fading” agriculture as the main source of income in rural areas to the extent that is satisfactory economically and socially. Low diversification of local economy and limited taxable economic base are serious growth handicaps, hitting remote rural areas the most. In the view of the above-mentioned phenomena, this paper tackles the problem of quality of rural labor analyzing its characteristics and the possibility to deploy it in non-farm sectors of the economy. The objective of the paper is to explore the effectiveness of the Common Agricultural Policy instruments in stimulating off-farm job creation in rural areas over the last 12 years of Poland’s membership in the European Union versus the country’s needs in this area. In this context the paper argues for strategic re-orientation of the CAP objectives enabling more effective job creation in rural areas.
