The European Union needs a coherent strategy for food and agriculture

13 October 2021

ECVC has long since been in favour of a "Common Agriculture and Food Policy", i.e. a comprehensive strategy to preserve and develop sustainable agriculture in Europe. This common policy would produce enough healthy food to feed the European population, drastically reduce GHG emissions from agriculture and food systems, preserve and restore biodiversity in the fields and in nature, create more and better job opportunities for people in rural areas, and improve the incomes and working conditions of farmers and farm workers.
