Hrabrin Bachev

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This book gives an answer the following questions: "What is farm sustainability?", "How to assess the level of sustainability of agricultural holdings?", "What is the sustainability of Bulgarian farms in the context of the implementation of the EU CAP?", "How to improve the sustainability of country's farms? ". First, the development of the "concept" of farm sustainability and the main approaches to its assessment are analyzed. On this basis, a more complete definition is made of the ability of a farm to sustain its managerial, economic, environmental and social functions over the long term. Then, a holistic approach for assessing the level of farm sustainability, appropriate to the current conditions of Bulgarian agriculture, is proposed, including a system of principles, criteria, indicators and benchmarks characterizing the managerial, economic, environmental and social aspects of farm sustainability. The general, managerial, economic, social and environmental sustainability of farms of different legal types, sizes, production specialization, ecological and administrative location in Bulgaria has been evaluated. The following identifies the factors and prospects for sustainable farming in the country. The development concludes with guidelines for further research, improvement of farm management and forms of public intervention in the sector. This book is intended for researchers, educators, students, experts, farmers, professional and non-governmental organizations, administrators, politicians and anyone interested in sustainable agrarian development.
