To address the current state and future direction of economic analysis with regard to local and regional food systems, CRFS and the Food & Environment Program convened a meeting of a group of economists and local food researchers in early 2013. This webinar provided a synopsis of the meeting outcomes, with a focus on questions one should consider when conducting or commissioning a study on the economic impacts of local and regional food systems. Participants weighed in with comments and questions to inform the discussion on economic impact studies of local and regional food commerce.
