Sparsely populated and under–populated areas

29-08-2016

The post-2020 cohesion policy reform is already the subject of debate among policy-makers, stakeholders and EU institutions. One issue being discussed in various European and regional institutions is that of the insufficient support for the EU's sparsely populated and underpopulated areas. The challenges these regions face are very much related to demographic change, and raise the general issue of the level of EU funding for regional development. Various studies suggest that low population levels ...

The post-2020 cohesion policy reform is already the subject of debate among policy-makers, stakeholders and EU institutions. One issue being discussed in various European and regional institutions is that of the insufficient support for the EU's sparsely populated and underpopulated areas. The challenges these regions face are very much related to demographic change, and raise the general issue of the level of EU funding for regional development. Various studies suggest that low population levels and remote locations mean that sparsely populated and underpopulated regions' economies tend to grow much less than the EU average or to stagnate altogether. They also claim that these regions suffer from a number of structural problems that pose major challenges, such as low birth rates and a lack of transport connections, job opportunities and adequate social services. However, although all these may be considered to be serious problems, various studies suggest that broadband technologies, tourism and agriculture could provide new opportunities to boost the economic prosperity of sparsely populated and underpopulated areas. This briefing seeks to analyse the issues that affect sparsely populated and underpopulated areas and provide a short overview of the EU support available for this category of region. Details will also be provided of the role of the European Parliament and the views of the various stakeholders.

Extent of Farmland Grabbing in the EU

13-05-2015

This study looks at the rise of large-scale land deals, ‘land grabbing’, in the EU. It finds significant evidence that farmland grabbing is underway in the EU today. It discusses a number of the drivers of farmland grabbing in the EU and examines the impacts of farmland grabbing for European food security and food sovereignty, rural employment and vitality, and environmental sustainability. It argues that farmland grabbing, especially when connected to other burning European land issues, calls for ...

Family Farming in Europe: Challenges and Prospects

15-04-2014

This note discusses the definitions, challenges and future prospects of family farming in the EU. Some challenges, such as market volatility and climate change, are general for all EU farm structures, but some are specific to family farmers: their smallness, lack of power within the food chain, and intergenerational farm succession. However, family farming – often by pluriactive and/or diversified households – is likely to continue to dominate EU farm structure in the foreseeable future, despite ...

This note discusses the definitions, challenges and future prospects of family farming in the EU. Some challenges, such as market volatility and climate change, are general for all EU farm structures, but some are specific to family farmers: their smallness, lack of power within the food chain, and intergenerational farm succession. However, family farming – often by pluriactive and/or diversified households – is likely to continue to dominate EU farm structure in the foreseeable future, despite trends towards larger family and non-family farms. Action at both EU and national policy levels could help towards a more sustainable and resilient family farm sector.

CAP 2014-2020 Tools to Enhance Family Farming: Opportunities and Limits

15-04-2014

Family farming is the predominant business model in European agriculture. The key challenges faced by family farms are considered in this briefing note and the effectiveness of policy measures in the EU, both the current measures and those agreed for the 2014 to 2020 period, in tackling these challenges is examined. The main conclusions are that Pillar I policies have transferred substantial funds to family farms and have ensured the survival of many farms that would have otherwise gone out of business ...

The key challenges faced by family farms are considered in this briefing note and the effectiveness of policy measures in the EU, both the current measures and those agreed for the 2014 to 2020 period, in tackling these challenges is examined. The main conclusions are that Pillar I policies have transferred substantial funds to family farms and have ensured the survival of many farms that would have otherwise gone out of business. However, the more targeted policies contained in Pillar II have been, and continue to be, more effective in addressing the specific challenges facing Europe’s family farms.
