Behavioural, Ecological and Socio-economic Tools for Modelling Agricultural Policy

Project description

Redesigning Europe’s agricultural policy

Sustainable and resilient agricultural systems are needed to feed and fuel Europe’s population in the long term. However, climate change and land-use intensification are threatening the EU’s agro-ecosystems. For instance, halting the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services due to landscape simplification requires a concerted effort to fundamentally redesign agricultural landscapes and the policies that dictate them. The EU-funded BESTMAP project will develop a framework that links economic modelling with individual-farm agent-based models. It will quantitatively model, map and monitor the impact of policy scenarios on the environment, climate system, delivery of ecosystem services, biodiversity as well as socio-economic metrics such as employment. With the help of an online dashboard and workshops with policymakers at EU, national and local level, BESTMAP will support the European Green Deal and enable the transformation of the EU agricultural sector post-2020.
