The Co-operative Research Programme (CRP)'s Call for Applications for conference sponsorship and research fellowships for 2014 is now open. The CRP supports work on sustainable use of natural resources in agriculture, forests, fisheries and food production.
To help meet the challenges posed by climate change, the agriculture sector should increase its resilience. This book presents the summary and papers from a joint workshop by FAO and OECD that looked at how agriculture can build resilience for adaptation to climate change.
Private investment in the food and agriculture sectors can enhance productivity, drive job creation and income growth, increase food supply and improve food security, according to panel participants. The panel also recognised the need to attract more private private investment in the food and agriculture sectors, and called on governments to design coherent policy frameworks and implement reforms to improve the investment climate.
What is the role of the private sector in greening the agro-food chain? This OECD/BIAC workshop will examine such issues as the role of new technologies in increasing productivity and reducing waste, as well as developing private-public partnerships.
How can government policies move towards increasing agricultural innovation and improving productivity? This OECD conference shared case studies and ideas from Europe, China, United States, India, Africa, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand.
This workshop will help policy makers improve understanding of the environmental effectiveness and economic efficiency of agricultural policies, and evaluate measures that improve agriculture’s environmental performance, such as incentives for farmers to deliver public goods.
How have Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reforms affected farms, sectors and regions in the European Union? These papers look at recent reforms, featuring the single payment scheme, quotas and restructuring in the sugar and dairy sectors, and the direct payment scheme.
This meeting explored the role of policy in addressing issues related to climate change, agriculture and land use, both in the context of GHG mitigation and of farmer adaptation to climate change.
Climate change will affect fisheries, fish stocks and coastal communities. Fisheries policymakers must strengthen global governance, use a rights-based management system, protect ecosystems, end environmentally harmful subsidies and focus on demand for sustainably caught seafood.
Agricultural research faces new issues, from food security to ecological concerns to land use. This collection of papers from a conference organised by the OECD Co-operative Research Programme (CRP) looks at recent progress and future challenges in agricultural research.
