Final report on knowledge transfer activities for policy makers D6.11
The outcome of the Task 6.6 provides the evidence base for analyzing the policy instruments and measures that may influence the development of sustainable legume-based cropping and grassland systems and agri-food and feed chains. A series of 4 policy briefs has been produced in order to identify improved practical policy options to develop sustainable and competitive legume-based farming systems and agri-feed and food chains in the EU. Specific objectives were to perform a diagnostic of relevant policies affecting legumes and understand the effect of current policy settings at EU and national levels, to identify potential policy needs, to simulate selected alternative policy design options, and to identify good practices and recommendations on prospective policy measures. Specifically, the Task 6.6 - Knowledge transfer for policy makers (M13-M48) is described in the DoA as follows: Four policy briefs are produced drawing on the expertise of selected project partners and with the contributions from key Stakeholders. Policy briefs consider the roles and responsibilities of different policy makers (EU, national, regional) and actors (research institutes, farmers, industry), the policy instruments and measures that may influence the development of sustainable legume-based cropping and grassland systems and agri-food and feed chains. For each policy brief a specific audience is defined and the content tailored accordingly.
A section in the Final Conference / webinar series was dedicated to policy engagement, targeting EC officers and policymakers. http://www.legvalue.eu/virtual-conference/the-role-of-policy-in-the-transition-of-legume-production-and-consumption-in-europe/Back to Publications
