Sustainable Intensification of Agriculture in Europe

ENCA Seminar on Sustainable Intensification of Agriculture in Europe - Challenges and opportunities for the environment and enhancement of biodiversity
 
20th November 2012, Scotland House, Brussels
 
Sustainable Intensification of agriculture has been suggested as part of the solution to addressing the global challenges of feeding a predicted world population of 9 billion by 2050 without irrevocably damaging our natural environment. However,what would Sustainable Intensification
 
look like in a European situation: in areas where food production is intensive and the environment and biodiversity is under pressure or, else-where where production is extensive and biodiversity high? Is there scope for further intensification whilst addressing the pressure on the environment?
Is intensification possible if high biodiversity values are to be maintained?
 
This seminar enabled experts to present evidence from variousEuropean countries which demonstrate the possibilities and limits for Sustainable Intensification in Europe.
 
The potential for Sustainable Intensification in European agriculture was further discussed.  Please see the presentations below.  Outcomes paper will be published shortly.
