I am trying to find information on agricultural pollution and the economic responses to the issue in the EU, specifically in Portugal.
Can you assist me in identifying some datasets?

Dear M. J. Dunn,
Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The EEA has produced several products related to environmental pressures from the agriculture sector. You may be interested in consulting:

- The chapter on ‘Environmental pressures and sectors’ from our flagship report ‘The European environment — state and outlook 2020’, that contains a section on agriculture on pages 292 – 300. Please see: https://www.eea.europa.eu/publications/soer-2020
- EEA publications on agriculture that are available at the following link: https://www.eea.europa.eu/themes/agriculture/publications. The NEC Directive reporting status 2019 may be of interest since agriculture is one of the key sector assessed in terms of air pollution. (https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/nec-directive-reporting-status-2019)
- EEA datasets and indicators on agriculture that are available at: https://www.eea.europa.eu/t[…]0=&c7=all&b_start=0
- Country-related information for Portugal can be accessed via: https://www.eea.europa.eu/countries-and-regions/portugal but unfortunately no factsheet is available on agriculture for the moment.

Eurostat presents some statistics on agriculture and the environment. The datasets can be accessed at https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/agriculture/data/database and https://ec.europa.eu/[…]/Agriculture

The European Commission is also looking closely at the agriculture sector as part of the European green deal and the farm to fork strategy.
Please see: https://ec.europa.eu/[…]/european-green-deal_en
and https://ec.europa.eu/food/f[…]y%20are%20not%20sustainable

We hope that this information may be useful for you. Should you have any specific questions, please do not hesitate to get back to us.

With kind regards,
