RDP55: This booklet, written by George Morse, Charles French, and Scott Chazdon, explores practical and credible methods for using the "but for" rule to document Extension Community Development Impacts.

Written by Stephan J. Goetz and published May 31, 2016 in Agricultural and Resource Economics Review. Abstract: Public interest in food systems has grown dramatically, and agricultural economists have important roles to play in contributing to and leading large-scale interdisciplinary studies of the subject. Key topics include understanding food system participants' behaviors and incentives and determining what food systems can and cannot achieve. I review a global food-security project funded by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture that illustrates the interactions between production, distribution, and consumption of food and regional self-reliance, as well as other important areas in which agricultural and regional economists can gainfully apply their tools and methods, including studies of the impacts of local food and network analyses.
