Welcome to the website of the SVAPPAS project. Here you can find all the latest information with regard to the project progress, the participants and several related fields of research.

SVAPPAS is the acronym for Sustainable Value Analysis of Policy and Performance in the Agricultural Sector. This EU financed Sixth Framework project, running from February 2007 till February 2010, brings together nine research groups from different European countries, including Belgium, Germany, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Hungary, Italy and Finland.

The core objective of the project is the development and adaptation of a methodology for the assessment of sustainability performance and policies in agriculture. This leads to following sub-objectives:

    • Developing and adapting the sustainable value methodology, an existing framework for the assessment of sustainability at farm, sector, national or cross-national level;
    • Testing the methodology for different case study areas;
    • Assessing the data needs and data availability to arrive at a standard approach for sustainability analysis of farms and farm policies.
