Resumen El propósito de este documento es incentivar un debate sobre un tema poco discutido en la región. Actualmente, los responsables de la gerencia de los predios agrícolas (tanto los agricultores por cuenta propia como los agricultores comerciales) de la región son, en alta proporción, personas de tercera edad, lo que no parece ser propicio para un desarrollo dinámico, ni del sector silvoagropecuario, ni de las áreas rurales, menos ante las exigencias cada vez mayores de competitividad en un mundo de mercados libres y globalizados.

On the basis of an analytical literature review, we developed a framework to operationalise a place-based approach of RDP.

However, the regional capability to valorise NC depends on the specific regional context, needs and potentials, as well as targeted policy support.

The input from the ministry of land for the delta plan 2100 formulation project is summed up hereinafter.
