EU measures to encourage and support new entrants

14-09-2012

The weak number of new entrants into farming in the EU-27 is determined by certain economic and social factors that characterise Union agriculture. The CAP envisages a series of measures to counter this situation, which have been only scantly effective. The new model introduced by the Commission constitutes an insufficient solution to the problem and needs to be redefined if it is to effectively attract new entrants, not only to farming but to any other activity in the countryside.

The weak number of new entrants into farming in the EU-27 is determined by certain economic and social factors that characterise Union agriculture.

That entails drawing a distinction between agrifood and agri-environmental policies on the one hand and territorial rural policies on the other, to develop a new Rural Policy Framework for the EU.

The Consequences of Enlargement for EU Agriculture

01-10-2001

The significant structural changes that have been occurring in rural Europe, especially since the beginning of the last decade, involve the declining role of agriculture, the enhancement of structural development policies, the diversification of rural labour markets and the increasing importance of environmental issues. EU enlargement is going to create both pressure and opportunities in existing EU Member States and accession counties.
