This paper analyzes the premises of the Territorial Approach for Rural Development—ETDR—as framework for public policies design in Latin America, by examines its application in the Rural Development Plan of the Province of Mendoza, Argentina, designed in 2004. The analysis identified significant shortcomings, within the approach, when applied as framework for the design of public policies.
