Abstract

Creating the development strategies for the agri-food sector is a very difficult task. In the case of the agri-food sector, it is particularly difficult to identify changes in external conditions of the functioning of the sector, which further complicates creating the strategies. The objective of the article is to present the backcasting approach and possibilities of its application to create the development strategies of the agri-food sector. Using backcasting, we should, however, remember that backcasting itself designates only the framework of work on building the strategies. The details depend on the relevance of the selected research methods and the comprehensiveness of the approach to the entire study. At the same time, we should bear in mind that backcasting does not reduce the disadvantages of individual research methods and tools.

Keywords: backcasting, development strategy, agri-food sector, agricultural policy
