Attaining policy integration through the integration of new policy instruments: The case of the Farm to Fork Strategy

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

This article departs from the assumption that the challenge of putting the Farm to Fork Strategy (F2F) into action stems from the broader challenge of attaining cross-sectoral policy integration. Policy integration has been part of the EU's policy approach for a long time and has predominantly been achieved in the form of environmental policy integration (EPI). However, the scope of the F2F extends beyond EPI, as it includes the integration of climate-related concerns into sectoral policies, for instance. Consequently, we contend that attaining policy integration in the case of the F2F is particularly challenging and calls for an innovative approach to policymaking.

Funding Information:
The collaborative grassland bird protection scheme pays grassland farmers in the Eider–Treene–Sorge lowlands, located in the State of Schleswig‐Holstein in northern Germany, for the protection of grassland bird clutches in fields when mowing, grazing, or managing the grassland. The scheme was initiated in the late 2000s as a grassroots initiative of local farmers and conservation activists through co‐production, which is a procedural organization instrument (Helmecke & Hötker, 2011 ). It was initially funded by donations, but after a few years of operation, the State of Schleswig‐Holstein took over the funding.
