Sustainable agriculture in central and eastern european countries

Sustainable agriculture in central and eastern european countries

Objective

The research project focuses on sustainable agricultural development (sad) in central andeastern european countries (ceecs). Sustainable development is an issue the 5th framework programme has ranked high making sustainable agriculture a key action. The region under research is related to a short-term priority of the eu, i.e. enlargement towards the ceecs. Hence, the conditions under which cee transition countris meet both the requirement for eu accession and the demands for sad provides the principal focus of research. The research partners are renowned experts in both fields - research on thetransition process and on environmental protection. They come from four universities that have gathered outstanding experience in the above-mentioned issues. They want to combine their expertise gained in several disciplines to analyse the topic by a complex and comparative approach. Guided by the principle that research should benefit all partners and give an explicit impetus to societal development, researchers and decision makers from the eu and cee countries and the fao are involved. This will facilitate widespread dissemination of results and of implementable recommendations on sad.
