Recognising farmers’ efforts
The CAP does not only contribute to SDG 2 on zero hunger, as mentioned in the European Commission’s reflection paper “Towards a sustainable Europe by 2030”. We need to make sure that the efforts made by the European farming sector are fully recognised in future policies relating to all three dimensions of sustainability: social, economic and environmental. In the future, Europe must ensure that farmers and agri-cooperatives can take full advantage of both traditional and new innovative production methods. It must propose solutions that are adapted to local conditions.
