(art. 2, c. 3, lett. d, D.P.R. 633/1972) 22,00 National Institute of Agricultural Economics SOCIOECONOMIC IMPACT OF DECOUPLING AND FOOD-CHAIN PERSPECTIVE: SOME INDICATIONS FROM ITALY After the implementation of the Mid Term Review (MTR) of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), European Union has started the process of understanding which possible impacts the introduction of the Single Farm Payment Scheme can generate on European agriculture. This book reports part of the results of the research activities carried out within GENEDEC project, financed by DG-AGRI in cooperation with DGResearch in the context of the Six Framework Programme, that have committed, in three years of research, fifteen Universities and Research Centres across Europe. The assessment of the proposed decoupling of direct payments, under consideration in the Mid-TermReview, was based on the analysis of their potential benefits and the likely costs including marketable and non-marketable goods, services, and the action of the economic decision-makers in the agricultural sector. The project has been designed to undertake socioeconomic and environmental assessments of such measures, by using a set of existing and modified models for various levels of analysis. The proposed methodological approach consists in extending the economic analysis using farm and sector level mathematical programming and other models incorporating technical inputs and sociological and qualitative methodology. The final objective of GENEDEC was to provide information on the possible impact and future implications of decoupling in order to enable policymakers to understand the main variables playing role in this new framework and the reaction of farm holders in term of supply of goods and services but also in term of strategies and, thus, adopt properly future agriculture policy action.
