Scientific Officer: Veronica SABBAG
Research topic: 5.4. Support for common policies (Common Agricultural/Fisheries Policy)

Abstract:
There is an increasing demand from policy-makers in the livestock area to be able to assess, in an integrated way, the economic, environmental and social impact of potential policy changes. The objective of this project is to build a state-of-the-art integrative, knowledge-based, spatially explicit decision support system to appraise the likely impact of policy change on the livestock sector. The system will integrate biogeographic data (on soils, climate, topography, land cover, etc.) With statistical data and other information on technical, economic, environmental and social aspects of liverstock systems. It will incorporate expert knowledge and display integrated, indicative results of the economic, environmental and social impacts of policy change.
