Serbia on the road to EU accession : consequences for agricultural policy and the agri-food chain by S. van Berkum( )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book aims at providing relevant background information in the event that a decision is made by the EU to begin accession negotiations with Serbia. If this happens, then the full set of Copenhagen criteria will become relevant. The book focuses on one of the Copenhagen criteria: the existence of a functioning market economy, including the existence of institutions required to support such a market economy within the EU. The book focuses on this aspect of the Copenhagen criteria in relation to agriculture, food, rural development and structural policy. The book has 11 chapters and a subject index

Food systems and natural resources by Henk Westhoek( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Global food systems have radically changed over the last 50 years. Food production has more than doubled, diets have become more varied (and often more energy-intense) satisfying people’s preferences in terms of form, taste and quality, and numerous local, national and multi-national food-related enterprises have emerged providing livelihoods for millions. Nonetheless, over 800 million people are still hungry (70% of whom live in rural areas in developing countries), about two billion suffer from poor nutrition, and over two billion are overweight or obese. The resource use implications and environmental impacts of these food systems are significant. In general, of all economic activities, the food sector has by far the largest impact on natural resource use as well as on the environment. An estimated 60% of global terrestrial biodiversity loss is related to food production; food systems account for around 24% of the global greenhouse gas emissions and an estimated 33% of soils are moderately to highly degraded due to erosion, nutrient depletion, acidification, salinization, compaction and chemical pollution. The Food Systems working group of the International Resource Panel has prepared a comprehensive scientific assessment of the current status and dynamics of natural resource use in food systems and their environmental impacts. The IRP identifies opportunities for Resource Smart Food Systems responding to policy-relevant questions like what do sustainable food systems look like from a natural resource perspective? How can resource efficiency improvements be made to enhance food security? How to steer transition towards sustainable food systems? The report looks at food as a crucial connection point (a ‘node’) where various societal issues coincide, such as human dependence on natural resources, the environment, health and wellbeing. Rather than looking separately at resources such as land, water and minerals, the IRP has chosen a systems approach. The report looks at all the resources needed for the primary production of food, as well as for other food system activities (e.g. processing, distribution) considering not only the set of activities, but also the range of actors engaged in them and the outcomes in terms of food security, livelihoods and human health

Toetreding van de vier Visegradlanden tot de EU: kosten voor het landbouwbudget by S. van Berkum( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in Dutch and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Met behulp van drie scenario's worden inschattingen gemaakt van de kosten van toetreding van de vier Visegradlanden in het jaar 2000 voor het EU-landbouwbudget. Deze scenario's komen tot stand aan de hand van een korte bespreking van verschillende opties die voor het landbouw(prijs)beleid in de betreffende Centraal-europese landen bestaan. De resultaten van deze berekeningen worden vergeleken met de uitkomsten van enkele andere inschattingen van toetredingskosten

Towards sustainable soy : an assessment of opportunities and risks for soybean production based on a case study in Brazil by S. van Berkum( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigates opportunities for and implications of expanding soybean production in developing countries. Increasing soybean production is expected to take place mainly in Latin America. However the international community is increasingly concerned about managing the natural resources in this region. Within the Round Table of Responsible Soy (RTRS) an international dialogue has started to secure that current soybean production and its future expansion is carried out within a sustainable framework. Within the context of this RTRS the study evaluates the compliance of current soybean production in Latin American countries to the sustainability aspects based on the Brazilian case. The research shows that soybean cultivation is embedded in a complex land use system that hampers quick fixes to evolve towards more sustainable production, but also inherit interesting opportunities for the development of integrated soybased production systems. Deze studie analyseert de kansen voor en consequenties van uitbreiding van sojaproductie in ontwikkelingslanden. Een toename van de sojaproductie wordt met name verwacht in Latijns Amerika. De internationale gemeenschap maakt zich echter in toenemende mate zorgen over het beheer van de natuurlijke hulpbronnen in die regio. In de Rondetafel van Verantwoorde Soja (RTRS) is een internationaal overleg gestart dat zich inspant om teelt van soja en de uitbreiding ervan op duurzame wijze te laten plaatsvinden. Tegen de achtergrond van de RTRS geeft de studie inzicht in de mate waarin de huidige sojaproductie in Latijns Amerika voldoet aan duurzaamheidscriteria, aan de hand van de situatie in Brazilië. Het onderzoek laat zien dat sojateelt onderdeel is van een complex grondgebruiksysteem dat snelle ontwikkeling naar duurzame productie bemoeilijkt maar dat ook interessante mogelijkheden biedt voor de ontwikkeling van geïntegreerde op soja gebaseerde productiesystemen
