The target is focused on managers, farmers, people belonging to associations, cooperatives etc. and the plan is to do a rapid assessment in the largest number of countries as possible, with the main aim to investigate the ability of the sector to react/cope with the pandemic event, and also to check for the main causes of economic loss (if any) by also asking if COVID-19 effects are being perceived as larger than other possible causes of economic loss previously experienced.

Your participation is essential and we invite you to complete the questionnaire below by answering some questions designed to evaluate the socio-economic effects of the pandemic on the sector and its operators. Evaluate ALL claims.
