Of course the above mentioned observations should be considered in dependence on regional conditions. They will thus vary across Europe and not all three visions fit equally well to all parts of Europe. For example, the Local Multifunctional vision is difficult to implement in regions where specialised or industrial agriculture is dominant, but could be promising in others. There could be substantially larger trade-offs, if any of the visions would be enforced throughout Europe. Thus there might arise a need to use policy instruments to address the remaining less desired consequences of each of the visions. Also a wish can be identified to continue exploring better land use policies which surpass the performance of the selected alternatives we have been able to study thus far.
