The Role of Cooperatives in the Nation’s Economy: Educating Future Cooperative Owners and Leaders

C-FARE's Focus

The Council on Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics (C-FARE) is a non-profit organization based in Washington, DC.  C-FARE promotes the work of applied economists and serves as a catalyst for incorporating economic thinking into the analysis of food, agricultural and resource decisions. We serve as a conduit between the research and outreach community and Washington, DC decision makers and stakeholders, matching expertise to public needs.

C-FARE's Mission

The mission of the Council on Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics (C-FARE) is to enhance the effectiveness of the food, agricultural, resource, and related economic sectors through a stronger national presence of the agricultural and applied economics profession in the processes of identifying key economic issues; connecting the work of the profession to those in policy making and leadership, and generating greater public appreciation for research, extension/outreach, and academic programs.

The scope of C-FARE’s activities will be consistent with the broad and growing range of subject matter areas that comprise the profession. Included among the subject matter areas are the economics of food production, distribution, and consumption; international trade and development; macroeconomic issues; natural and human resources; environmental quality; rural and agribusiness management; public policy; legal-economic issues; energy; and others. The Council also will develop linkages to other rural, social, agricultural and life sciences.
