The project will focus on the process of marginalisation of rural areas in European countries with a different status to the EU and historical background. The project aims to develop a set of recommendations and tools for appropriate land use based on a selection of ecological, cultural and socio-economic criteria for policy and decision makers at local, national, and EU level. In addition the project will study the role of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) in the process of marginalisation and developing of tools and recommendations for appropriate land use.
