Future challenges and resilience of farming systems in Europe (178th EAAE seminar)

Published on
April 1, 2021

Challenges in the form of short-term shocks or long-term stresses are inherent to agriculture. Extreme weather events, livestock and plant diseases, market shocks, absence of farm successors, shortage of labour force, constantly changing legislative frameworks, and other challenges, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic, endanger the efficient provision of public and private goods. How can farming systems adapt or radically transform to cope with these challenges? What resilience-enhancing strategies can be followed? Who is taking the lead in enhancing resilience of a farming system?

Under the flag of the EAAE (European Association of Agricultural Economists) Wageningen University and other members of the SURE-Farm resilience consortium are organizing a 3-day seminar (18-20 May 2021).
