This leaflet, updated in October 2015,Â Â shows at a glance the main data about the agricultural social protection systems in the European union. (4 pages in English and French)
In Europe, rural populations have specific needs: the nature of the economic activities, agriculture’s restructurings, the central place of agricultural families… Six countries (Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Greece and Poland) have chosen to give them autonomous social protection systems in order to answer these needs. They deal with the whole spectrum of social security: health, pensions, workplace accidents and occupational illnesses, family and/or services.
The network also welcomes observer members : Montenegro.
