Economic Analysis of Local and Regional Food Systems Webinar

Rich Pirog & Jeffrey O'Hara

To address the current state and future direction of economic analysis with regard to local and regional food systems, CRFS and the Union of Concerned Scientists’ Food & Environment Program convened a meeting of a group of economists and local food researchers in early 2013. This webinar provided a synopsis of the meeting outcomes, with a focus on questions one should consider when conducting or commissioning a study on the economic impacts of local and regional food systems.
