Muchnik, J. (2009). Localised Agrifood Systems: concept development and diversity of situation. Paper presented at the Annual Meetings of the Agriculture, Food and Human Values Society and the Association for the Study of Food and Society. State College, Pennsylvania, 28-31 May 2009

Localised agrifood systems are a type of organisation of agrifood activities, in which territorial dynamics play a decisive role in terms of the coordination between stakeholders and the development of production activities. The aim of this paper is to analyse: the construction and evolution of the SYAL concept, the integrated character of the SYAL concept and its conceptual basis, how activities are linked with territories and the factors involved in territorial anchorage, the diversity of situations and how the SYAL concept operates.
