Les services de l'élevage - ANG
Farming is a key stakeholder in rural territories, contributing to jobs and rural life, promoting heritage, maintaining the countryside, preserving biodiversity, and more.
To identify and quantify the services provided by farming to different areas, CNIEL is co-chairing a working group set up in 2011 by the Elevages Demain (“Farming Tomorrow”) scientific interest group.
This group has launched research aiming to develop useful key indicators for measuring the benefits of farming, studying the interactions between these different services and assessing their importance to the different areas being considered (plains, mountains, etc.).
The results of this initial research are expected shortly and should lead to proposals for further research.
