The Spatial Policy Context of Economic, Agricultural and Environmental Change in Rural Ireland

  • Cathal O’Donoghue
Chapter
Part of the Advances in Spatial Science book series (ADVSPATIAL)

Abstract

Policy affecting rural areas is multi-faceted and multi sectoral, spanning traditional agricultural policy and enterprise, rural and regional development, environmental policy and spatial policy. In this chapter, we provide a policy context for the development of a spatial microsimulation model, focusing in particular on the policy context in Ireland, the setting for the model.
