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:

  1. EC (2019), EU agricultural outlook for markets and income, 2019-2030. European Commission, DG Agriculture and Rural Development, Brussels.
  2. 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.

5 Common global trends for the agricultural sector

5 Trends that apply specifically to the EU agricultural sector

One of the ways in which the EU supports the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is through the Research and Innovation Programmes. Currently, we are in the last year of the H2020 Programme, which will lead in 2021 to the next 7-year initiative: Horizon Europe.
