The power of local - sustainable food systems around the Baltic sea : interdisciplinary synthesis of the BERAS project. Baltic Ecological Recycling Agriculture and Society (BERAS), no. 7. Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Centre for Sustainable Agriculture, pp. 23-31.
This chapter introduces the cases and the disciplinary approaches and methods. The BERAS study had a case study approach, and this report presents the interdisciplinary synthesis of the multidisciplinary study. Ultimately, the BERAS study attempted to clarify the potential impacts of enhanced localisation and recycling rather than to compare the average status of the present local, organic food systems and organic farms with the dominant food systems and agriculture.
