CONCORD calls for a sustainable common agricultural policy

CONCORD calls for a sustainable common agricultural policy | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Initially developed in the early sixties, the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has undergone several waves of reforms – the latest one of which was decided in 2013 and implemented in 2015. Since then, the context has changed significantly. Against this new background, the European Commission believes that “the CAP must be modernised, simplified, and made even more coherent with other EU policies to maximise its contribution to the ten Commission Priorities and the Sustainable Development Objectives.” The Commission thus decided to carry out a public consultation on the simplification and modernisation of the CAP.

Swimming Against the Current: Sustainable Agriculture in an Age of Commercial Farming | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Farming today has become very commercial and competitive. Farmers are no longer growing crops for the welfare of themselves or the welfare of the people. Industrial agriculture has taken over farmers ever since the beginning of the green revolution – or rather, the farmers have taken over industrial agriculture. From our experience it is difficult to wean the farmers since universities are also hand in glove with the industries promoting the industrialisation of agriculture.
