ENESAD, UMR CESAER, INRA-ENESAD
Sustainable development is a concept in course of construction which needs materialize throught precise indicators to become operating. In agriculture, this indicators are laking and it is difficult to evaluate the impact of agricultural policies on sustainable development. In the economic area, where indicators exist, the evaluation shows the rough impact of the deletion of direct subsidies on the increase in unemployment, in unexploited areas, and on cutting-down in production. This observation brings in question the sustainability of the actual agricultural policies in the long run, and brings in question the theorical postulates these policies are steming from. Beside the questions about economic sustainability, many examples show the contradictions of these policies in matter of social and environnemental sustainability. All these questions shows the long way which remain to be cover to built the new governance forms necessary to set up agricultural policies that can promote a real sustainable agriculture.
Key words: sustainable development / indicators / governance
