  • Sustainable development deficit in Europe: modelling, ranking, and
           classification of countries

    • Authors: Pavol Otepka, Volodymyr Grynenko
      Pages: 1 - 9
      Abstract: The paper focuses on evaluation of progress of European and neighbouring countries in sustainable development using the system of environmental, social and economic indicators. The task of the research is to identify the problem (deficit) points of countries from the sustainable development point of view. The system of indices which characterize deficit in different sustainable development dimensions has been evaluated. The ranking of European and some neighbouring countries on sustainability problems level has been developed. The counties under consideration have been classified on significance and nature of their sustainable development problems. It is shown that the level of sustainable development is not related with the level of economic development, some of the most economically developed European countries have deep sustainability problems and, in contrast, it is possible to reach good progress toward sustainable development despite economic difficulties.

  • EU policies: opportunities for aquaponics

    • Authors: Kyra Hoevenaars, Ranka Junge, Tamas Bardocz, Matej Leskovec
      Pages: 10 - 15
      Abstract: Aquaponics is treated under the common EU policies related to fisheries, agriculture, food safety and environment. Because aquaponics falls into fish as well as plant production relevant policies are the Common Agriculture Policy and the Common Fisheries Policy, the EU Food Safety and Nutrition Policy and the EU Environmental Policy. However, as a modern food production technology, aquaponics supports several development goals set by different fields of EU policies. Goals related to aquaponics in these policies include promoting innovation, increase competitiveness, improve access to space and water, welfare of fish, prevention of waste, and promoting resource-efficiency and low-carbon economy. Aquaponics provides solutions to these goals by minimising water and nutrient use, utilising areas unfit for other food production systems, facilitating local food production and thus providing new business opportunities. The EU provides various frameworks for financial support for the different components of aquaponics including the Seventh Framework Programme, Horizon 2020, EIP-AGRI, SME-instrument, PRIMA Initiative, EMFF and the COST Action FA 1305 – EU Aquaponics hub.
