ORTEGA, Antonio César. Desenvolvimento territorial rural no Brasil: limites e potencialidades dos CONSADs. Rev. Econ. Sociol. Rural [online]. 2007, vol.45, n.2, pp.275-300. ISSN 1806-9479.

This paper aims at evaluating the capacity of the territorial approach to contribute to poverty issues and Brazilian social inequalities, representing an alternative of employment and income generation in depressed rural territories. Through Consórcios de Segurança Alimentar e Desenvolvimento Local-CONSADs (Food Safety Consortia and Local Development) we analyzed the potentialities and difficulties the strategy is facing to establish the cooperation between public power and civil society regarding fomentation, logistic support and canalization of resources for territorial initiatives, projects and structuring actions that seek employment and income generation with food safety warranty and local development.

Keywords : territorial development; rural development; local social arrangements; food safety; CONSADs.
