Common agricultural policy towards the development of mountain areas

Marta Czekaj , Janusz Żmija


Mountain areas due to their specific character should be managed in that way, which delivers people from rural areas appropriate income, what enable preserving and maintaining social tradition, unique features of environment and cultural landscapes. Mountain areas and every activity connected with them are part of national heritage. Maintain sustainable development of mountain areas requires continue of agricultural production and assuring appropriate economic conditions. Hence dwellers of mountain areas should have opportunity to earn in nonagricultural sources. Development of mountain areas connected only with agricultural production would lead to the impoverishment of the local population. Hence to counteract this process, it is necessary to assure direct payments for farmers, and at the same time expand nonagricultural function of this region. It is necessary to enrich rural areas in the mountains by creating a diversity of natural and cultural landscape. And although may it be a conflict between the objectives of conservation and agricultural activity, it seems that they could be overcome against the benefits which such cooperation can bring people in mountain areas
