Sustainable agriculture for the future we want
How on earth are we going to feed 2 billion more people by 2050 as climate change depletes the land and water available? We will have to produce more food with fewer resources. The question is how. The European Union is developing its Common Agricultural Policy in ways that we believe are good for Europe, and good for the world: towards more sustainability in agriculture.
Dacian Cioloş, EU-Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, and Andris Piebalgs, EU-Commissioner for Development, are closely working together to find solutions . This paper sets out what we are doing to promote sustainable agriculture and why, in both the EU and in developing countries. It is also a call to action.
