The rural approach to territorial development has challenged globalization; the countries have opened their agricultural borders through trade agreements that benefit the rural sector. Europe has become an agricultural power, leading the design of foreign trade policies for products of agricultural origin, expanding its areas of influence to underdeveloped countries, proposing changes in the world economy. This approach proposes to build and strengthen cultural identity in rural territories and improving the quality of life. This research proposes the development of a synthetic well-being index for fifteen rural municipalities in the province of Malaga, in the south of the Autonomous Community of Andalusia. The results show that the results of the studied territories are homogeneous, with small differences in the capital of the Antequera Region.


Keywords – development, rural approach, food sovereignty, synthetic index, well-being, agribusiness.
