Evaluating Law and Regulatory Institutions Relating to Agriculture and The Environment


A rapidly changing world requires responses to help the American agricultural sector in providing abundant foodstuffs and complying with health, safety, and environmental obligations. This project will analyze laws and legal materials that affect agriculture and the environment to develop and extend knowledge about legal and economic institutions impacting agricultural performance and environmental management. The project will (1) help farmers and agribusinesses in understanding complex legal and regulatory issues, (2) provide advice and guidance to agriculture to assist in conforming with new health and safety requirements, (3) construct and test models of policy and regulatory action, (4) assess the implementation and enforcement of agricultural and environmental institutions in terms of efficiency, (5) assist other professionals in becoming cognizant of new developments; and (6) aid in the formation of policy objectives.
