[Title:] Agrarian Economy and Rural Development - Realities and Perspectives for Romania. 9th Edition of the International Symposium, November 2018, Bucharest [Pages:] 82-88
Among the essential resources of a particular area, the land resources have an important role in the economy, due to their economic importance at local level, in terms of its capitalization, and on the other hand, from ecological perspective, i.e. in terms of environment quality and of ensuring the necessary habitat for various animal species. Without making a clear-cut difference between the two dimensions, i.e. economic and ecological, the present approach aims at making an X-ray of the stock of land resources in the third development region of Romania, namely the Sud-Muntenia region. Consisting of seven counties with different demographic, economic and social characteristics, the region Sud-Muntenia is characterized by divergent evolutions of the stock of land resources, both at inter-county and intra-county level, with direct impact upon the local durability and sustainability and in reducing the gaps between Romania and the EU average.
