The Farm Business Survey (FBS) is a long standing annual survey collecting data from a representative sample of all farm types in England. The FBS collects information on the financial, physical and environmental performance of farm businesses to inform and evaluate policy decisions. The FBS is intended to serve the needs of farmers, farming and land management interest groups, government, government partners and researchers. it currently also meets our obligation to supply data to the EU Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN). This follows the PIN (PIN Reference 2016-041680) issued on 31.8.2016 (https://defra.bravosolution.co.uk/web/login.html?_ncp=1441867266908.34013-1)

FBS is a panel survey. The farms are full-time or part-time commercial undertakings and data collected covers all aspects of the farm business; both financial i.e. output value and costs relating to all farming enterprises; diversified activities; revenue from agricultural support and agri-environment schemes and physical as well as labour and geographical characteristics. Data is used to construct a management account for each farm comprising a profit and loss account, balance sheet and net worth reconciliation. A key aspect of the survey is the individual feedback provided to co-operating farmers to enable a review of their business performance. The FBS methodology has been established over a number of years based on sound management accounting principles and in line with the requirements from FADN. The purpose of this PIN is to advise of a further engagement event to be held on Thursday 1st December to seek innovative options for the delivery of the Farm Business Survey.

Service Provider for implementing Green Economic Growth Programme (GEGP) for Papua Provinces in Indonesia

Department for International Development | Published December 6, 2016  -  Deadline January 9, 2017

Indonesia is the world's fifth largest emitter of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) and is crucial to the success of any global strategy to tackle climate change. Almost 80 % of these emissions stem from deforestation and land-use change. The rate of deforestation in Papua has been historically low compared to the rest of Indonesia. It is Indonesia's easternmost province and has 40 % of Indonesia's remaining tropical forest. Other provinces in Indonesia have followed a high carbon development path, driven by large scale capital intensive projects (plantations, industrial forestry and mining). To date this has not occurred to the same extent in Papua. However, there is significant and growing pressure to convert Papua's forests unless the development model in the province changes. Papua matters to Indonesian and global efforts to tackle deforestation and climate change. There is a significant opportunity to support sustainable climate resilient growth. The provincial government is keen to deliver alternative, innovative development approaches that retain Papua's forest resources, support livelihood improvement, and institutionalise a business-friendly environment for low carbon enterprise. Papua's private sector currently faces key constraints from market and governance failures stemming from the nascent stage of the private sector itself, and the challenging regulatory and operating environment. Actions to address these constraints could help the province to unlock the private sector's potential to grow and support a transition to a sustainable climate resilient growth model. DFID is seeking to engage Service Provider for providing technical support to implement the GEG programme focussing on voicing SME development from the bottom-up, while increasing the confidence to go-into-business, and also the public confidence in local authorities to manage local economic development, including investors' confidence to invest in those rural and urban regions of Papua. The core Team should comprise of a small cadre of highly skilled staff on private sector development, social venture capital and with a combination of skills drawn from the public and private sectors to balance GEG support to the dedicated local economic development funds currently available at village level.
