A multifunctional perspective of agriculture

Year: 2008 Author: IAASTD/Ketill Berger, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
In IAASTD, multifunctionality is used solely to express the inescapable interconnectedness of agriculture’s different roles and functions. The concept of multifunctionality recognizes agriculture as a multi-output activity producing not only commodities (food, fodder, fibers and biofuels), but also non-commodity outputs such as ecosystem services, landscape amenities and cultural heritages.
