This paper assesses the effect of territorial identity as a facilitator of the regional-sectorial absorption of CAP funds within Italy, France and Spain. We test the hypothesis that areas and sectors characterized by community-based and place-sensitive production competences, the reflection of local socio-political values and tacit know-how, attract more funds. Territorial identity is declined in terms of local social capital and measured by a relatedness index, inspired by regional economics but newly used in agricultural economics. Drawing on FADN data over the period 2010-2017, we exploit Fixed Effects and dynamic panel data models. The results demonstrate that local social capital (i.e. territorial identity) significantly affects the absorption of CAP funds for rural development. A positive mediation effect in more-developed regions and for productions that evoke the deepest and most ancient relationship between man and environment, such as winegrowing is found.

Abstract

This paper assesses the effect of territorial identity as a facilitator of the regional-sectorial absorption of CAP funds within Italy, France and Spain. We test the hypothesis that areas and sectors characterized by community-based and place-sensitive production competences, the reflection of local socio-political values and tacit know-how, attract more funds. Territorial identity is declined in terms of local social capital and measured by a relatedness index, inspired by regional economics but newly used in agricultural economics. Drawing on FADN data over the period 2010-2017, we exploit Fixed Effects and dynamic panel data models. The results demonstrate that local social capital (i.e. territorial identity) significantly affects the absorption of CAP funds for rural development. A positive mediation effect in more-developed regions and for productions that evoke the deepest and most ancient relationship between man and environment, such as winegrowing is found.
