CAP post 2013 - last call for sustainability?
NGO Briefing to the Informal Meeting of EU Agriculture Ministers on September 22-23, Annecy, France
On September 22-23rd, the French Presidency is hosting an informal EU Agriculture Council dedicated to the future of the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) after 2013.
For this important occasion, several environmental NGO'S (BirdLife International, EEB and PAN Europe) have released a policy briefing and letter to the Agriculture Ministers, detailing that the issue of food and energy security – and prices - can only be addressed effectively through a new model of agriculture that emits less greenhouse gases, consumes less natural resources and is less harmful for citizens’ and ecosystems’ health.
