    Focus 4/2013: Agricultural policies – finding the right approach
    The development of rural areas calls for a holistic policy approach. Social and environmental policy, economic and trade policy and food and agricultural policy need to be cleverly combined in order to boost the rural economy without overexploiting natural resources, and if this is to succeed in the long term, to combat hunger and poverty. In this edition, with a view to agriculture as a driving force of rural development, we have chosen to focus on a sub-aspect of this policy mix: agricultural policy. Erfahren Sie mehr

  2. Rural 21 (engl. Ausgabe 3/2013)
    Focus 3/2013: Soil – a resource under threa
    Over the last few years, the increased rush on farmland has demonstrated just how precious and scarce soil is.

The second part then takes up sustainable land management practice. Finally in the third part we look at the political level.

  3. Rural 21 (engl. Ausgabe 1/2013)
    Focus 1/2013: Food losses
    Roughly one third of the food produced globally for human consumption is lost or wasted – 1.3 billion tons per year. Even if these estimates are subject to numerous uncertainties, one thing is beyond doubt: every kilogramme of food that is produced but not consumed is one too many. For it embodies valuable, wasted resources such as land, water, agricultural inputs and energy, unnecessary CO2 emissions have been released into the atmosphere, farmers have lost not only income but also a valuable part of their nutrition, and consumers pay the increased prices that result.
