Diffusion and transfer of knowledge in agriculture

Diffusion and transfer of knowledge in agriculture


C. Huyghe, P. Bergeret , U. Svedin

Edition 2016

This book focuses on innovation in the agri-food system and the new paradigm drawn by bioeconomic approaches and principles. It draws on contributions presented during the 29th EURAGRI annual conference held in Luxemburg (September 2015) as well as on other workshops organised as part of EURAGRI. EURAGRI works as a platform of exchange and discussion on topics of common interest pertaining to the organisation, orientation and outlook of agri-food research in Europe in connection with global changes.

Les territoires de l'eau potable

Territorial policy and drinking water

Chronicle of a silent transformation (1970-2015)


R. Barbier , A. Roussary

Edition 2016

Recent territorial reforms in France will speed up the restructuring of public services related to drinking water in major urban centres and large inter-municipal associations. Such reforms should seek ways to strengthen water security through public initiative (i.e. access to sufficient high-quality resources and the ability to protect them; sustainable maintenance of technical means in good operating conditions and water at an affordable price) while balancing rationalisation and proximity.

Water at Risk?

A resource to constantly be preserved


V. Andréassian, D. Lefèvre

Without water there would be no life on Earth. However, between excess and shortage, droughts and floods, against a backdrop of climate change, the water issue has become a major challenge for the 20th century.

How will we manage the risks associated with water and the conflicts they may cause. In a style as clear as spring water, this work gives us the essentials needed to better harness this vital resource.
