Περιγραφή:

In the European Union (EU), the European Commission has included in its Europe 2020 strategy the ‘Sustainable growth: promoting a more resource efficient, greener and more competitive economy.' It has also recognized the positive role of agriculture and livestock in rural areas in delivering ‘multiple economic, social, environmental and territorial benefits.'  In the framework of the research project FLINT (‘Farm Level Indicators for New Topics in Policy Evaluation’), one of the main aims was to provide a review of indicators and to collect the related data from farms to determine the level of sustainability. The concept of sustainability refers not only to the triple-bottom-line approach - Profit (economic), Planet (environmental) and People (social) - but also to other issues like innovation, risk management, market outlets and quality labeling, advisory services, and climate change. The small ruminant sector was one of those that included this, as its contribution to the strategy of sustainable growth has recognized. In this paper, we will attempt to present two cases referring to the dairy sheep sector in Greece (Ipeirus) and Spain (Navarra). A collection of core indicators will be presented to compare the sustainability level for dairy sheep farming between the two countries. The assessment of the sector’s sustainability level will help to develop the appropriate decisions/policies either at the farm or territorial level.
