This project will examine the future development of Organic Farming Policy (OFP) in Europe. The primary concern of the project is to guide the further development of European OFP, including policy instruments and institutions that address the full range of conditions necessary for organic growth. Recommendations for the further development of OFP will be based on analysis of
a) the development of Organic Farming (OF) in selected EU countries under implementation of EU Agenda 2000 and
b) the pattern of development of OF in CEE Accession nations.
The relationship between results from the two analyses will assist determining the likely impacts of EU enlargement on OF development in EU and CEE nations. Recommendations will focus on outlining further developments to OFP that would promote OF in both existing EU nations and in Central and Eastern European (CEE) states in a complementary way.
