ECVC’s contribution to the European Commission’s Initial Impact Assessment , in the framework of the “Restoring Sustainable Carbon Cycles” initiative.

The EU needs a comprehensive strategy to preserve and develop sustainable agriculture in Europe. This strategy must produce enough healthy food to feed all Europeans; drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture and food systems; preserve, restore and enhance biodiversity in the countryside and nature; create more and better employment in rural areas; and improve the income and working conditions of farmers and farm workers. The Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) must be based on sustainable family farming involving many European farmers.
