Final Report - FAAN (Facilitating Alternative Agro-Food Networks (AAFNs): Stakeholder Perspectives on Research Needs)

Project ID: 217820
Funded under: FP7-SIS


This is the final report of the FAAN project which put into practice 'cooperative research' among five national teams, each comprising an academic institution and a Civil society organisation (CSO), in order to analyse how current policies and other factors facilitate, hinder or shape the development of alternative agro-food systems. It focused on a specific form - Local food systems (LFS) - in Austria, United Kingdom, Hungary, France and Poland. Each national team carried out two case studies, results were brought together, and their implications for policy and practice at European Union (EU), national and regional levels were assessed.

The FAAN project provided evidence for recommendations about changes in European, national and local policies that would be necessary to strengthen LFS in the future.

The final report describes the project execution, starting with its context and objectives, going on with the results achieved and, finally, its potential impact and main dissemination activities.
