Session 3.4

Farming for food and for nature. How farmers can become the actors of the sustainability transition

With the publication of the Farm to Fork Strategy and the Biodiversity Strategy, Member States have the opportunity to include in their CAP Strategic Plans concrete measures to substantially support farmers in the transition to more resilient and sustainable agriculture. The targets presented in the two strategies for 2030 provide a framework for policy-makers at EU, national and regional level. They provide also opportunities for the introduction of new environmentally friendly practices and targeted measures funded by the future Common Agriculture Policy (CAP), which shall be the key enabler for the achievement of these targets.

Join our interactive session to discuss the potential of the agro-ecological practices and how best to integrate them in the CAP Strategic Plans to achieve maximum benefits for all stakeholders.
