Recently, the EU Commission made public a new report on the medium-term outlook for major EU agricultural markets to 2030. It includes: analysis of uncertainties, trends and macroeconomic factors that can have an impact on the sector in the EU. Two years before, in 2017, FAO published a report identifying the main global trends and challenges that would define the future of food and agriculture in the coming decade.
The mentioned reports are:
- EC (2019), EU agricultural outlook for markets and income, 2019-2030. European Commission, DG Agriculture and Rural Development, Brussels.
- FAO (2017), The future of food and agriculture – Trends and challenges. Rome.
In this post, we are going to present some of the main trends identified by these two studies.
