Page 1: Welcome to CCRI Generational Renewal Questionnaire

This survey is part of an important research project investigating the impact of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) upon 'Generational Renewal' (GR), local development and jobs in rural areas. We have official support from the Directorate-General for Agriculture & Rural Development and have to submit our report by 6th December.

Due to this deadline, we would appreciate a rapid response. The survey will close at 23:59h on 26th November, 2018.

This questionnaire covers both GR in agriculture and rural areas and should take no more than 10 minutes.

The current CAP includes many instruments and mechanisms that can be used by Member States and regions to encourage successful GR in agriculture and rural vitality. This study is looking specifically at CAP measures targeting GR in agriculture - the Young Farmer measures – and other ‘CAP measures relevant to GR’ in rural areas.

In agriculture, GR is defined as: "where there are sufficient young people, willing and able to take on farms and farming as a business choice, to enable agriculture to make a positive and enriching contribution to the local economy and community in which farms are situated.

In rural areas, GR is defined as: "where rural communities are stable or growing in population, and there is a sufficient range of rural businesses and employment opportunities for young people, to sustain them.
