EU Organic Action Plan: progress and prospects in increasing the competitiveness of organic producers

The scope of this survey is to contribute to the mid-term evaluation of the first priority domain of the EU Action Plan for Organic Food and Farming published in 2014. The survey is undertaken as part of a study commissioned by the Committee of the Regions to Progress Consulting S.r.l., with Fondazione FORMIT participating as subcontractor.

The first priority domain of the EU Organic Action Plan focuses on increasing the competitiveness of European Union organic producers. Towards this objective the European Commission outlined in the Action Plan nine actions. These actions range from awareness raising to research and innovation promotion as well as monitoring and evaluation initiatives.

The survey is a 15-minute questionnaire aimed at investigating the perception, opinion and experience of various categories of stakeholders on the effectiveness and relevance of these actions. It is open to all, although it is mostly targeted to those actors concerned with the EU organic sector. Local and regional authorities across the EU are particularly welcome to participate in this survey.
