Long-Term Challenges Facing European Agriculture: The Need for New Public and Private Policies
In January 2009, Sciences Po-with the support of the German Marshall Fund-held a conference on European Agriculture looking ahead to 2020. Experts from various fields contributed and discussed eight policy papers on the critical issues facing European and Global Agriculture.
This policy brief argues that European Agriculture will face significant challenges over the coming decades. Issues like the effects of climate change, the management of natural resources, and the constant battle to keep our food safe are altering the debate significantly. A broad vision will be needed to incorporate these different challenges into the Common Agricultural Policy and match them up with the most appropriate policies.
