WP4: Agri-food networks

WP4: Local agri-food networks and their environmental effects in Brittany

This study will identify and explain the main environment effects when farmers join a local agri-food network.  It will also analyse how government policies facilitate or impede environmental improvements through such networks.  Brittany provides a good case study for a general European problem of how alternatives can counter environmental damage from industrial agriculture.
