FAST: Facilitate public action to exit from pesticides

The FAST project aims to provide robust empirical evidence of the effectiveness of various public actions aimed at triggering a large-scale transition to pesticide-free agriculture. The general objective of this project is to propose political and organizational solutions, concrete and firectly usable by public decision-makers and more generally the stakeholders of the agroecological transition. The effectiveness of these solutions will be assessed by the most advanced techniques in the social sciences, including laboratory and field experiments, action research approaches and large-scale simulation models. More specifically, the project will focus on producing quantitative analyses of the effectivenes of past, current and future public interventions; studying the effects of various public interventions at different scales; co-design organizational and political innovations with stakeholders.
