Abstract : The issue of the expected effects is an important one. The field visits demonstrated that these effects can be evaluated in economic and social terms, as well as at the environmental and cultural levels. Regarding the economic evaluations, it should be emphasized that in certain situations, the issue is not so much a question of the creation of value, but rather a matter of the battle against the exclusion of certain producers from the market. The difficulty of the planning phase for emerging approaches and the need to devise operational action plans around different situations in the various countries have led the instructional team to amend the initial intervention activities and to suggest additional questions for the delegations about the construction of their projects, such as: - Consumer knowledge: What means exist to encourage consumers to become more familiar with your product? (for example, the role played by immigration, emigration, and tourism). - Societal recognition of the trades and crafts, and of the people engaged in them, through recognition of the products: What actions can be taken to enhance this recognition (competitions, etc.)? - Geographic indications sit at the intersection of sectors and territories. Accordingly, how can territorial collectives be involved in these activities, and what role can they play? What are the territorial policies? How can quality-related steps be implemented at the sector level? Can regulatory frameworks and frameworks for coordination among operators reestablished within the sectors? Which managerial methods should be implemented for dealings between the government and the professions? (Résumé d'auteur)
