2007 and 2008: Outlook Reports

The 2009 report, released in November 2008, draws attention to how the increasing worries about food security are forcing fresh appraisals of environmental policies and the degree to which we can accommodate the complex social and political demands of these changing times whilst still producing affordable food. The problems of rural poverty and the lack of affordable housing in rural areas also present very real policy challenges in a time of economic downturn.

The report also highlights how the livestock sector remains dependent on EU support and is significantly influenced by the dominance of retailers, global markets, consumer trends and social prosperity. In the crop sector, the volatility of the market makes forward planning difficult, with risk management being a priority in the year ahead.
