The integration of environmental concerns in mountain agriculture
The purpose of the study is to analyse and assess the impact of Community measures on “the integration of environmental concerns in mountain agriculture”. In covering this topic, we plan to answer three questions:
- What production conditions are specific to mountain areas? are there special interrelationships between agriculture and the environment in these regions (complementarities and conflicts, differences and common points)?
- What is the environmental impact of the Community measures that influence mountain agricultural activities (analysis and summary)?
- How can the environmental dimension be better integrated in mountain agriculture (strategic options and proposals, improvement of existing measures and creation of new instruments, etc.)?
