CAP regimes and the European countryside : prospects for integration between agricultural, regional, and environmental policies by Floor Brouwer( )

16 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The objectives of this book are to review assessments made on the environmental effects of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and to judge the contribution of agricultural policy to environmental quality in the European Union. It focuses on the role of agricultural policy in reducing harmful effects and/or creating benefits to the physical environment, landscape and nature. Emphasis is given to comparative studies, rather than any limited to one country. A major part of the book considers the commodity regimes of the CAP - e.g. the beef regime, the arable crops regime, the olive oil regime. It is essential reading for those studying and working in the areas of agricultural and environmental economics and policy and rural geography."--Jacket
Multifunctional rural land management : economics and policies by Floor Brouwer( )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increasing demand for rural land and its natural resources is creating competition and conflicts. Many interested parties, including farmers, nature conservationists, rural residents and tourists, compete for the same space. Especially in densely populated areas, agriculture, recreation, urban and suburban growth and infrastructure development exert a constant pressure on rural areas. Because land is a finite resource, spatial policies which are formulated and implemented to increase the area allocated to one use imply a decrease in land available for other uses. As a result, at many locat
Agriculture and climate beyond 2015 : a new perspective on future land use patterns by Floor Brouwer( )

21 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interactions between agriculture, climate and patterns of land use are complex. Major changes in agriculture, and land use patterns are foreseen in the next couple of decades in response to shifts in climate, greenhouse gas management initiatives, population growth and other forces. The book explores key interactions between changes in agriculture, patterns of land use and efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions from agriculture. The volume is based on inter-disciplinary science and policy interactions, exploring the way land use may aid in addressing or be affected by the onset of climate change and alterations in food demand. Future forces shaping land use decisions are examined, and its sensitivity to climate change is highlighted. Patterns of land use and the agricultural role in climate change mitigation are explored. Also, policy and social responses to the new perspectives on future land use patterns are identified. The perspective of the book is beyond the year 2015
Environmental and agricultural modelling : integrated approaches for policy impact assessment by Floor M Brouwer( )

21 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Agriculture increasingly faces the challenge of balancing its multiple functions in a sustainable way. Integrated assessment and modelling (IAM) can provide insight into the potential impacts of policy changes. However, concepts to address the wide range of issues and functions typical for agriculture are still scarce. "Environmental and Agricultural Modelling" reviews and presents our current understanding of integrated and working tools to assess and compute, ex-ante, alternative agricultural and environmental policy options, allowing: analysis at the full range of scales (farm to European Union and global) whilst focusing on the most important issues emerging at each scale; analysis of the environmental, economic and social contributions of agricultural systems towards sustainable rural development and rural viability; and analysis of a broad range of issues and agents of change, such as climate change, environmental policies, rural development options, effects of an enlarging EU, international competition, and effects on developing countries
New perspectives on agri-environmental policies : a multidisciplinary and transatlantic approach( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Significant advances have occurred in recent years in Europe and in North America in addressing agri-environmental policies. Land use issues tend to be more pressing in Europe than in the US as a whole because of different spatial exigencies. Because these advances have taken place within individual academic disciplines, there has been something of a loss of synergy and often efforts are duplicated. While important institutional and legal differences still exist between the two continents, the sharing of recent scientific advances will benefit scientists on both sides of the Atlantic and this is the main purpose of this book. The authors aim to identify options for policy to overcome the challenges ahead, synthesize existing knowledge, and identify gaps in current knowledge. This is aided by the adoption of a properly comparative approach
Public concerns, environmental standards, and agricultural trade by F Brouwer( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and Italian and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reviews issues about the quality of the environment in relation to agriculture, and relates them to agricultural trade and competition.

Governance of water-related conflicts in agriculture : new directions in agri-environmental and water policies in the EU by Floor Brouwer( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book contributes to a better understanding of the role such co-operation can play in complying cost-effectively with European environmental legislation, in particularly the EU Nitrates and Water Framework Directives, and in achieving a sustainable agriculture. The feasibility of meeting environmental standards by the application of voluntary agreements between farmers and water suppliers is analysed as a more economically efficient and environmentally effective means compared to applying alternative instruments like command-and-control and taxes. In addition, the potential of voluntary co-operative agreements for achieving a more flexible European Union water policy as well as for reforming the Common Agricultural Policy is assessed. The book will appeal to those researching and working in achieving a more sustainable water management and agricultural practices
Land use changes in Europe : processes of change, environmental transformations, and future patterns : a study initiated and sponsored by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis with the support and co-ordination of the Stockholm Environment Institute by Floor M Brouwer( Book )

21 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The patterns of land use that have evolved in Europe reflect the boundaries set by the natural environment and socio-economic responses to the needs of the population. Over the centuries man has been able to overcome increasingly the constraints placed on land use by the natural environment through the development of new technologies and innovations, driven by an increasing population and rising material expectations. However, activities are still ultimately constrained by natural limitations such as climatic characteristics and associated edaphic and vegetational features. A major problem for land management, in its broadest sense, can be a reluctance to foresee the consequent ecological changes. This means that mitigating strategies will not be implemented in time to prevent environmental degradation and social hardship, although in many parts of Europe, over some centuries, demands have been met in a sustainable way, by sound, prudent and temperate expectations that have dictated management regimes. The management of land in Europe has always been a complex challenge: land is the primary, though finite resource. DeciSions regarding the use of land and manipulation of ecosystem dynamics today may affect the long-term primary productivity of the resource. Decisions to change land use may be virtually irreversible; urbanization is an illustration of the influence of population density on the land resource
Nature and agriculture in the European union : new perspectives on policies that shape the European countryside by F Brouwer( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nature and agriculture both shape the European countryside and one of the main challenges for the years to come will be to strengthen their interaction for the future development of rural areas. In this valuable and highly topical book, the authors demonstrate how economics and ecology can play a critical role in maintaining and sustaining this relationship. The book identifies the dilemmas facing European agriculture and explores their economic and ecological consequences. The authors believe a better understanding of these problems will be crucial in recognising the potential options for the future role of agriculture and nature policy and will guide the identification of suitable policy instruments. They highlight current threats to the relationship between agriculture and nature - such as abandonment and intensification - and demonstrate how these problems can be resolved by a rational policy mix. The book also provides extensive empirical evidence from four case studies and concludes by scrutinising the major changes in market conditions and the Common Agricultural Policy which could upset this important but fragile balance between agriculture and nature

Sustainable land management : strategies to cope with the marginalisation of agriculture( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In large parts of the world, the reduction in viability of agriculture and rural areas is an escalating problem. Driven by a range of factors, including insufficient economic returns from land used agriculturally, ageing populations in rural areas and limited economic perspectives from agriculture and other land-based activities, marginalisation could induce harmful abandonment of the land or the loss of biodiversity and landscape features. New perspectives arise in rural areas and multifunctionality is often seen as a strategy to cope with marginalisation. This important new book offers a contemporary overview of strategies employed to cope with marginalisation of the land and improve viability of the rural countryside. The volume is based on detailed case studies undertaken in Europe, the USA, Japan and a number of developing countries."--Jacket
