Drs Damian Maye, James Kirwan and Mauro Vigani were in Esbjerg, Denmark on the 4th to 6th July for the fifth project meeting for the SUFISA [Sustainable finance for sustainable agriculture and fisheries] project.
It was a busy and productive meeting, which included finalising the design of an inventory for the project, agreeing plans for a producer survey and agreeing procedures to help undertake a cross-comparative analysis of institutional arrangements. They were also involved in discussions for their two commodity case studies, related to inshore fisheries and dairy farming respectively.
Despite their busy agenda, the CCRI team also found time to enjoy a visit to an organic dairy farm and to play table tennis with project partners in the evening.
The purpose of SUFISA is to identify sustainable practices and policies in the agricultural, fish and food sectors that support the sustainability of primary producers in a context of multi-dimensional policy requirements, market uncertainties and globalisation.
