Ex-post Economic Impact Assessment of Agri-Environmental Measure “Organic Farming”: Case Study of Lithuania

Abstract

Impact assessment is an important tool for policymakers. Pursuing sustainable farming development, it is important to analyse and evaluate possibilities and obstacles of the implementation of sustainable farming practices. The development of new policies requires indepth analysis and a thorough assessment of the impact of already implemented policy measures (ex-post evaluation).This article aims to assess the ex-post economic impact of the agri-environmental measure “Organic farming” on the performance of farming indicators. One of the counterfactual ex-post impact assessment methods – Propensity score matching (PSM) analysis – was used to achieve the goal set. This method allows assessing the effectiveness of the implemented measure and adapting to research-based policy decisions considering the possibilities of applying this measure in the future. We used Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN) – the most comprehensive economic information about the activities of farms – data to evaluate an ex-post economic impact of the agri-environmental measure “Organic farming” in Lithuania. The results of the research support us with new knowledge about the effectiveness of the agri-environmental measure “Organic farming” in Lithuania and suggest the ways of their improvement in the future. The research has revealed that organic farms became more extensive, while conventional farms became more intensive during the period of 2007–2013.

 

Keywords: Agri-Environmental Measure “Organic farming”, Propensity Score Matching, Sustainable Farming.
