Switzerland For many consumers organic products have the reputation of being healthier, safer and better tasting than conventional foods, whereas genetically modified (GM) foods are often seen as unnatural, a threat to health or a potential risk to the environment. The key question in this study was whether these perceptions agree with scientific findings. September 2001 1. Summary of the findings 1.1. Starting position and aims of the study
  • For many consumers organic products have the reputation of being healthier, safer and better tasting than conventional foods, whereas genetically modified (GM) foods are often seen as unnatural, a threat to health or a potential risk to the environment. The key question in this study was whether these perceptions agree with scientific findings.
  • A scientifically sound risk-benefit assessment leading to an objective discussion requires that the various agricultural production systems be objectively compared with each other instead of being individually assessed in isolation. Based on published scientific papers, InterNutrition presents a summary of the facts that must be taken into consideration when comparing organic, conventional and genetic engineering farming strategies.

Environmental Planning in India

The need for the environmental administration of India to become active in the field of environmental planning is founded in the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986, which authorizes the Central and State Government " to have the power to take all such measures as it deems necessary or expedient for the purpose of protecting and improving the quality of the environment and preventing, controlling and abating environmental pollution" [3 (1)]. Measures under this clause may include "planning and execution of a nation-wide program for the prevention, control and abatement of environmental pollution [3 (2), (ii)]. This task of environmental management includes spatial (geographical) aspects as explicitly mentioned under [3 (2), (v)] "restriction of areas in which any industries, operations or processes shall not be carried out or shall be carried out subject to certain safeguards".
This clause calls for a spatial approach in environment management further substantiated in the Environment (Protection) Rules which states that such restrictions be carried out under consideration of "Environmentally compatible land use" [5 (1), (vi)]. Since, the carrying capacity of the environment is not unlimited and some areas or ecosystems are more susceptible to adverse environmental impacts than others, the unplanned and haphazard location of industries might substantially increase the risk to the environment. Environmental planning is a proven tool for reducing the impacts from such risks. However, this tool has seldom been used in this country. Proper siting of newly planned industries and industrial estates is a strong pollution preventive instrument that ensures environmental soundness of the industrial development.

Integrating environmental aspects into variety approval procedures Brauner,R.; Hermann, A.; with the Research Institute of Organic agriculture (FiBL
Agriculture concentrates predominantly on the production of foodstuffs . Beyond this, though, it is increasingly producing renewable raw materials for industrial uses and energy generation. To this day, agriculture accounts for a good half of Germany’s land area and shapes the character of the country’s landscape. Moreover it has a key influence on the metabolic cycling of soil and water, the quality of air, the structural diversity of the landscape and the diversity of species. Over the last few decades, production practices have changed rapidly due to intensification, rationalization and specialization. These developments have been accompanied by greater emphasis on division of labour and processing outside of the immediate region. This, in conjunction with subsidies, has enabled consumer prices to be kept low.
The other side of the coin is well known. Progress which once seemed desirable has now gone to extremes: good-value products have become raw materials traded at dumping prices. Regionalized production and consumption are steadily becoming a thing of the past. So valuable land in Third World countries is used to grow feedstuffs for industrialized countries instead of crops to feed the local population. The landscape is being adapted to the demands of machines, while animals and plants are tailored to the needs of industry. In the process, robust livestock breeds and well-adapted plant species are lost forever. By concentrating genetic engineering on a small minority of species from highly productive varieties and breeds, this process is accelerated. Little attention is being paid to the potential long-term health risks for consumers. Often the long-term management and conservation of soil, water, air and species diversity is sacrificed for short-term gain.

Multi-Billion Dollar Mississippi River Plan Slammed
A coalition of environmental, agriculture and taxpayer groups detail fundamental flaws in a $2.3 billion proposal to expand locks on the Upper Mississippi and Illinois rivers. A new report, Twice Cooked Pork: The Upper Mississippi River-Illinois Waterway Navigation Study, concludes that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers revised study is based on "an unprecedented combination of mistakes, miscalculations and misstatements." Increasing navigation efficiency
through non-structural measures
Proponents of navigation expansion have long maintained that the only way to eliminate traffic delays on the Mississippi River is to expand the locks, a project that would cost over $2 billion, take decades to complete and do little to benefit small farmers, rural communities or the environment. On the contrary, a number of non-structural measures exist that would increase navigation efficiency immediately, cost much less to implement and better benefit everyone involved. Three new publications explore these non-structural measures.

TOP Oil and gas supplies The World Resources Insitute's "Protecting the Atmosphere" site presents James J. MacKenzie's article Oil as a finite resource and shows why and when we will need new resources of energy. MacKenzie argues that by 1995 over a third of global oil supplies have already been consumed. Given the assumptions of further growth in demand, he assumes that oil production might decline around 2007-2014. Policies to encourage more efficient oil use and a switch to alternative enrgy sources become urgent. In Shell AG's Discovery Zone, the company gives reference information on - of course - the oil and gas industry and fossil fuels. However, they also maintain a site on renewable energy and sustainable development, which includes background on biodiversity, climate change, energy efficiency, and how to make organizations more sustainable.

The Centre for Rural Social Research (CRSR) conducts research into the social aspects of environmental management, especially in agriculture, with specific reference to the Murray-Darling Basin. Qualitative and quantitative methods including Rapid Rural Appraisal, focus group discussions, unstructured interviewing, as well as large scale social surveys and GIS mapping have been undertaken to research, amongst other things, the social basis of adoption of sustainable agriculture. Research projects undertaken by CRSR in this area include:- Australian Farm Families' Experiences of Drought Severe drought has long term economic and social costs to all Australians. Research for this project focused on farm families in the Central Queensland and Riverina areas who have lived - and are still living - through drought, and explored the sociological variables which influence attitudes to drought. The work was conducted by CRSR researcher, Dr Ian Gray, in conjunction with the Rural Social and Economic Research Centre at Central Queensland University. The knowledge gained through the `lived' experience of drought has been analysed and interpreted in order to bring that knowledge to other farm families in Australia. It will also enable an informed long term management strategy to be developed which will assist rural adjustment and counselling agencies in their activities. A report was published by the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation and is available at

Policy Aspects of the Agriculture/Environment Relationship
Michael Hamell, Head of Agriculture Sector, DGXI, EU Commission
1. Introduction
Thank you for the invitation to speak at this conference. The overall shape of the Common Agriculture Policy was established for the period 2000-2006 by the Agenda 2000 reform. The shape of environmental policy for the next ten years is foreseen in the 6 th Environmental Action Programme launched by the Commission earlier this year and now being debated with a view to a decision by the European Council and Parliament. In addition, the Commission published a Sustainable Development Strategy in late spring 2001 on which the Swedish presidency of the EU drew conclusions at the Gothenborg summit. Therefore, examining policy aspects of the agriculture/environment relationship at this stage is most relevant although it must be stressed that the inter-relationship is not new but evolving and is now based on considerable knowledge in both the practical and legislative sense. It is worth asking a question.

Approaches to sustainable agriculture
To pursue the approach adopted by the Commission to the integration of the environmental aspects of agriculture into the reform of the CAP under Agenda 2000.
Communication from the Commission to the Council, the European Parliament, the Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions of 27 January 1999 Directions towards sustainable agriculture.
Over 75% of the territory of the European Union consists of land which is used for agriculture (44%) or is wooded (33%). As commercial activities, the main aim of agriculture and forestry is to produce and so they are dependent on the availability of natural resources, the exploitation of which exerts pressure on the environment. Technological developments and commercial criteria intended to increase yields and reduce costs have greatly increased the intensification of agriculture over the last forty years. The common agricultural policy (CAP) is largely responsible for this intensification. The high level of support for agricultural prices has encouraged intensive agriculture and greater use of fertilisers and pesticides. This has resulted in polluted water and land, and the destruction of some important ecosystems.
