Livestock and rural development policies in the EU: some emerging issues and developments

A critical review of EU policies for agriculture and the rural economy.

Year of Publication1999

A review of current policies and their international context suggets that the EU faces many challenges to its strategies for agriculture and the rural economy. Although it has begun the process of addressing these, it still remains a fundamental tenet of policy that what is good for agriculture is good for the rural economy. The need for a shift of resources towards the goal of sustainable rural regions is accepted but Agenda 2000 at present appears to lack both the substance and budget necessary to achieve a significant impact through non-commodity-oriented programmes.
