Environmental management in agriculture - mechanisms, forms and efficiency

Hrabrin Bachev

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This study suggests a new holistic framework for assessment and improvement of environmental management in agriculture, and analyzes the evolution of the system of agro-eco-management in Bulgaria, and assesses the impacts and responses to the 2011 Great East-Japan earthquake and Fukushima nuclear disaster. It incorporates an interdisciplinary New Institutional Economics approach (combining Economics, Organization, Sociology, Law, Behavioral and Political Sciences), and presents a modern framework for analyzing and assessing the environmental management in agriculture. It presents evolution and assesses the efficiency of diverse management forms and strategies for environmental management in Bulgarian agriculture during the post-communist transformation and the European Union integration, and evaluates the impacts of the EU Common Agricultural Policy on environmental sustainability of farms of different juridical type, size, specialization and location. It identifies and assesses the forms, factors, efficiency and perspectives of environmental management in the “eco-active” farms of different type and location in Bulgaria. It evaluates the multiple impacts of the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Fukushima nuclear disaster on the Japanese agriculture, and presents the process of restoration and adaptation of the sector to consequences of that first in the world history triple environmental disaster. Book would be helpful for a wide range of readers (researchers, educators, students, experts, farmers, civil servants, policy makers, interest groups, non-governmental and international organizations) who are involved or want to understand the eco-managment in agriculture.
