Shaping the agriculture of tomorrow -
How can farmers and consumers benefit from a reformed CAP?
Tuesday, 1 June 2021 I 09:30-10:45 CET
The sustainability aspects of EU farming and food production were strengthened in political discussions on the future of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and delivery of the European Green Deal objectives. The Commission's proposals for the future of the CAP aim to make the EU's agricultural policy more responsive to current and future challenges, while continuing to support the needs of European farmers, who have a double challenge – to produce food whilst simultaneously protecting nature and safeguarding biodiversity.
Join this EURACTIV Virtual Conference to discuss the future of agriculture, and how the CAP reform will affect European farmers and consumers alike.
