SURE-Farm – Towards SUstainable and REsilient EU FARMing systems

Research domain:
Organisation of agriculture

Project duration:
01.06.2017 - 31.05.2021

Concerns exist about the viability of EU farming systems. In this four-year project we aim to design concrete pathways to improve the resilience of farming systems. The project addresses determinants of resilience, potential improvements of risk management strategies, drivers of farm demographics, and strengths and weaknesses of the existing policy framework. Expected impacts are assessed with regard to the delivery of private and public goods. SURE-Farm is led by Wageningen University & Research. In total, the consortium includes 16 partners from 13 countries and has a strong transdisciplinary approach with active roles for e.g. upstream and downstream value chain actors and insurance companies.
