The overarching research question developed in the Conceptual Framework conveys the core objective of SALSA (What is the contribution of small farms and of the related food businesses to sustainable FNS in a wide range of foos systems?) by highlighting that the research follows a systemic approach.

This Analytical Framework (AF) builds upon the Conceptual Framework to identify objectives and methodological steps of such systemic approach and to guide data collection and analysis (to be carried out as part of WP3) in all the reference regions (RR), at NUTS 3 level (identified in WP2). It also serves to analyse and interpret data once they have been collected.

This AF addresses Small Farms (SF) and Small Business (SFB) contribution to food and nutrition security from different standpoints: from the perspective of the regional food system into SF/SB and, vice versa, from the perspective of SF/SFB into the regional food system, combining multiple data collection methods.
