The goal of this report is to identify and evaluate measures which improve the resilience of farm demographics and facilitate entry into the sector.
Farm demographics are defined along two dimensions: from an institutional perspective, which represents the legal organization of farms, and from a human resource perspective demographics, considering characteristics like age, qualification, gender, origin.
This work uses both quantitative and qualitative data to provide an overview of trends in demographic processes of European farming systems over the last decades.
