Integrated farm statistics

27-06-2018

As the EU’s policies evolve and adapt to changing circumstances, European statistics need to develop and meet users’ information needs efficiently. New technologies can help to combine and integrate different data sources without too great a burden on data producers. Farm statistics are the backbone of the EU’s agricultural statistical system. To increase their response speed to new data needs, the Commission put forward a new approach based on an integrated, flexible and modular framework. The Parliament ...

Urban agriculture in Europe: Patterns, challenges and policies

18-12-2017

It is estimated that by 2050, 67 % of the world's population will live in urban areas. Increasing concerns over food security coupled with concerns over climate change have helped to promote interest in urban agriculture and the role it can play in respect of food security. The present paper aims to provide an overview of urban agriculture by examining it as it relates to issues of food security, the economy, social dimensions and the environment.

It is estimated that by 2050, 67 % of the world's population will live in urban areas. Increasing concerns over food security coupled with concerns over climate change have helped to promote interest in urban agriculture and the role it can play in respect of food security. The present paper aims to provide an overview of urban agriculture by examining it as it relates to issues of food security, the economy, social dimensions and the environment. Using short case studies and drawing on research from both Europe and the USA, the paper further explores the potential impact that urban agriculture can have and sets out its policy context. Looking to the future, one of the many challenges facing urban agriculture will be how it will achieve the necessary integration across all relevant EU policy areas.

The EU's beekeeping sector

24-10-2017

Every year, the EU's 600 000 beekeepers and their 16 million beehives produce 200 000 tonnes of honey. This is not however sufficient to cover demand on the EU market, and the shortfall is made up by imports, above all from China. Threats to bee health and market competition make the economic viability of apiculture a critical matter. EU policies aim therefore to address these issues and promote beekeeping, an activity that is of vital importance to the environment.

New approach for integrated farm statistics

05-04-2017

European agricultural statistics represent a complex system of data describing the numerous facets of agriculture. They provide detailed knowledge allowing the taking of informed decisions and the shaping and evaluation of agricultural policies based on hard evidence. Farm structure statistics are the backbone of this system. The European Commission proposes a new approach for integrated farm statistics to create a more coherent, flexible and interlinked system of agricultural statistics.

Research for the AGRI Committee - The Consequences of Climate Change for EU Agriculture: Follow-Up to the COP21 UN Paris Climate Change Conference

15-02-2017

This report reviews and discusses the implications for the agriculture sector of the COP21 UN Paris climate change conference and the recent EU climate policy proposals for 2030. It looks specifically at the role that the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) plays in supporting climate action within the agriculture sector and considers how the CAP might evolve post 2020 to support the agricultural sector in reducing GHG emissions and adapting to climate change.
