Land for family farming? Tools and policies in Wallonia and Europe

Land is the basis of agricultural production. Beyond the simple productive aspect, it provides many ecosystem services (aesthetic and cultural dimensions, flood prevention, carbon sequestration etc.). In Europe and Wallonia, farm lands become an increasingly scarce and coveted resource. Urbanisation, speculation and non-agricultural capital investment weaken family farming. There is a strong need to take stock of the situation of agricultural land regulation in Europe. So, What is the price of farmland? Should the land market be regulated ? If so, how doing it in the best way to support family farming?
