We farmers’, development, climate and environmental organisations, are writing to you to express our concern at the current state of the ongoing trilogue negotiations of the Common Market Organisation (CMO) in the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The reformed CMO must become an effective tool to stabilise agricultural markets while reducing adverse effects on sustainability goals in the European Union (EU) and beyond. In its proposal the European Parliament, the Union’s co-legislator, has included a number of important articles that help increase the crisis-resilience of EU agriculture, promote overall sustainability and allow for a transition toward better food sovereignty. We therefore urge you to seriously consider the proposals made in the European Parliament’s CMO position from October 23 rd 2020 and to ensure their inclusion into the final CAP.
