WP4 Team Advances Towards First Deliverable – online meeting on 4 April 2024

The WP4 team within the BrightSpace project convened for an online meeting on April 4, 2024, to review progress and outline the necessary steps to finalize their first deliverable, D4.1.

WP4 aims to systematically analyse the available theoretical and empirical knowledge on the relationships between public policies and the SJOS dimensions, identify the most relevant research gaps and carry out some novel empirical analysis, which can provide the basis for the modelling activities carried out in other WPs.

Deliverable D4.1 due by the end of April 2024, will be a preliminary report examining the impacts of agricultural, climate, environmental, and trade policies. The deliverable will be structured into three main chapters of the policy areas to be analysed in WP4:

  • CAP Policy Tools: with a special emphasis on Agri-Environmental and Climate Measures.
  • EU Trade Policies: with a focus on Non-Tariff Measures.
  • EU Climate-Related Policies: examining their effects on agri-food systems.

In addition to conducting a comprehensive literature review, each chapter will pinpoint key research gaps and outline planned empirical analyses to be carried out throughout the remainder of WP4’s duration until November 2025. Furthermore, discussions will center on how WP4 analyses can inform ex-ante modeling endeavors across other work packages.

As the WP4 team presses forward, their efforts promise to yield valuable insights into the relationships between policy frameworks and the pursuit of a Safe and Just Operational Space within the agricultural sector.
