Agri-environmental indicators are a useful tool for analysis of the connection between agriculture and environment and identifying developments in this intensive interaction. Such indicators should consequently help to accomplish a better understanding of the complex issues in the field of agriculture and environment, to show developments over time, and to provide quantitative information.
In order to help the improvement of environmental performance of agriculture, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has established a set of agri-environmental indicators, developed in co-operation with Eurostat and Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO). These indicators inform policy makers and society on the state and trends in agri-environmental conditions, and can provide a valuable aid to policy analysis.
Currently, there is a deficiency of continuous monitoring of indicators connected to the impact of agriculture on the ecosystems and environment in Republic Macedonia. A development and continuous monitoring of applicable agri-environmental indicators is a key of valuation of the impact of agriculture on environment. Therefore, this paper will give an overview of current data and state of agri-environmental indicators in Republic of Macedonia and accordingly an analysis and evaluation of the sustainable development in the country.
