The overall objective of this project is to estimate and describe the impacts on European countries of agricultural trade liberalization in the Mediterranean region. The major changes to be expected are increased EU imports of fruits, vegetables and olive oil and increased EU exports to non-EU Mediterranean countries of cereals, meats, and milk products. Estimation of changes in exports of cereals, meats, and milk products will be done using a well-established sector model. For fruits, vegetables and olive oil, available quantitative models are not sufficient to properly capture the complexity of the phenomena involved (many different products, various seasonal patterns, complex detailed trade regimes). Expert panels for the Mediterranean countries with substantial export potential will be used to complement modeling approaches done at the country level. These expert panels, assembled on the basis of CIHEAM/IAMM's extensive network of contacts in agri-business, production, academia, etc. throughout the region, will be asked to estimate what the likely changes will be under different liberalization scenarios, which will then be used to estimate impacts on the EU's producing regions and budget. The project has nine work packages that characterize the agricultural and agro-industry sectors in Mediterranean countries and the EU (1 and 2); describe and quantify the EU protection systems for the same products (3); develop specific liberalization scenarios (4); estimate the production and export potential for each Mediterranean country (5); quantify changes in European and Mediterranean production, imports, and exports (6); examine interaction with world markets and international negotiations (7); estimate changes in European production, incomes, budgets, social changes, etc. (8); and disseminate results (9). The consortium consists of well-known institutions from EU member and candidate countries, from other Mediterranean countries.


The Impact of climate change on agricultural production in Mediterranean countries
Atay, Mehmet Ufuk; Sarı, Ramazan; Yücel, İsmail; Department of Earth System Science (2015)
The aim of the study is to determine the impact of climate change on agriculture for Mediterranean countries by employing vulnerability and econometric analysis. At first step, a composite agricultural vulnerability index is created by principal component analysis (PCA) for Mediterranean counties and world’s top 35 cereal producer countries. Then, based on index scores, countries are grouped by cluster analysis. Several indicators are selected from different international databases according to three compon...
Assessing the sustainability of urban agriculture: the case of Çankaya municipality
Doğan, Şeyma Başak; Kayasü, Serap; Department of City and Regional Planning (2022-1-14)
Agriculture, as the basic economic activity carried out inside the city, has had both economic and social meaning for people since ancient times. However, industrialization caused an increase in the priority of non-agricultural activities in cities. As a result, agricultural activities had lost their importance inside cities, and were becoming mostly related to a rural context. Although agriculture is generally associated with a rural context, the economic, social, and environmental problems originated by r...
Common agricultural policy regionalised impact - the rural development dimension (CAPRI-RD)
Öcal, Nadir(2013-4-30)
The Common Agricultural Policy Regionalised Impact – the Rural Development Dimension (CAPRI-RD) aims to develop and apply an operational, Pan-European tool including all Candidate and Potential Candidate countries to analyse the regional impacts of all policy measures under CAP Pillar I and II across a wide range of economic, social and environmental indicators, aligned with the CMEF. CAPRI-RD’s core contains consistently linked economic models at the NUTS 2 level, the CAPRI model for agriculture, and a new...
Sustainable design implications for alternative food networks: A case on Güneşköy's community supported agriculture (CSA) model
Kaplan, Ayşe; Doğan, Çağla; Department of Industrial Design (2021-6)
The global food system consists of complex processes (i.e., food production, distribution, consumption, and disposal) and contains several environmental, economic, and social sustainability challenges. As a result of the food system's problems, some producers and consumers have taken actions that have resulted in the emergence of alternative food networks. These are primarily bottom-up initiatives led by creative and innovative groups of people collaborating to develop alternative food-system solutions. Dif...
Impact of Atatürk dam on social and environmental aspects of the southeastern Anatolia project
Akyürek, Gökçe; Altınbilek, Doğan H.; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
In this thesis the impact of the Atatürk Dam on social and environmental aspects of the Southeastern Anatolia Project has been discussed in terms of planning and policy making, institutional arrangements, infrastuctural development and human resources development. In order to analyse the impacts of Atatürk Dam data related to several components are collected. These components can be listed as resettlement, land acquisition and land consolidation, education, health, gender issues. The results show that the A...
