Abstract

The regional dimension is central when designing structural reforms for rural areas. In this study we implement the multidirectional efficiency analysis approach in a regional, rural development context, with the aim of analysing the regional efficiency of agricultural resource use. The efficiency patterns of each input and output were observed over three Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) periods. The results show the largest improvements in the efficiency of diversified output and labour, especially when concerns about environmental conditions and rurality were included in CAP, 2008-2013. Further improvements in regional efficiency could be achieved by creating possibilities for diversified output and structural changes in assets.
