Public demands are expressed by several actors of the society. The role of lobbies is undoubtedly important in the media and has a direct influence on decision makers. Their common influence is the result of diverse interests that are often partly or totally contradictory like those of agro-industries, farmers, scientists, environmentalists and consumers. The resulting perception of the problems and challenges by politicians is finally reflected in public policies. With regard to agriculture and environment problems, these policies changed rapidly in many OECD countries in the last decades.
