Is food supply in the EU at risk due to Putin’s war against Ukraine? No

Is there a problem on global maize🌽and wheat🌾markets? Yes

Is this a reason to throw sustainability targets and #FarmToFork overboard? Definitely not

Here’s why 👇 ImageImageImage
The EU is largely self-sufficient for several key food products.

Production in 2022 of cereals, rapeseed, and sunflower is projected to surpass the previous 5-year average.

▶️ europa.eu/!wwBwMj Image
In fact, about ⅔ of cereals in the EU are used as animal feed. Human consumption accounts for the remaining ⅓ and biofuels take up 3%.

Meanwhile, 20% of EU food (about 88 million tonnes per year) is lost or wasted. ImageImage

THREAD. Looming food crisis caused by invasion of #Ukraine seen by “Big Ag” (agricultural lobby & their political allies) as an opportunity to throttle the EU’s Farm to Fork (F2F) strategy. But this could compromise future food security + puts animal feed over food. We explain: Image
Big Ag’s argument is: the war threatens EU’s food supplies so we should roll back environmental considerations in #F2F & #CAP, like curbing the use of chemical fertilisers & pesticides and keeping some land to restore & protect nature
But take cereals, one of the key commodities at stake: The EU is a NET EXPORTER of cereals & has a self-sufficiency rate of 112%. Last year, the EU exported 44.8m tonnes & imported only 19.7m tonnes. Source: EU data. Image

The story of the #BuildBackBetter has yet to be written. Let’s examine the 50 Republican US Senators who are voting against lifting children out of poverty, education,elder care, affordable prescription drugs, child care & family leave? What does this mean for YOUR STATE? Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Richard Shelby is voting against the #ChildTaxCredit “The Center on Budget &Policy Priorities found making the program permanent would benefit 93% of #AL children,lift 162,000 #AL children above/closer to poverty line & benefit 480,000 #AL children under 17. Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Tommy Tuberville has offered you no solutions; he has admitted that he “wouldn’t have a clue” how to address the current pandemic and recently told people that $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits was just “too much.” al.com/news/2021/12/a… Image

EU auditors report on #climate impact of the #CAP shows what a disgrace this policy is

"the €100 billion of CAP funds attributed to climate action had little impact on such emissions, which have not changed significantly since 2010"

#WithdrawTheCAP
The next CAP deal promises to be much more of the same - nice headlines but underneath no accountability for actually achieving any results
Not only is there no evidence of improvement, the CAP actively "supports climate-unfriendly practices" like draining peatlands and promoting livestock consumption

1. Ministeri Jari Lepän kyselytunti toimittajille uudesta CAPista pidettiin juuri äsken puhelinkokouksena. Ympäristövaatimukset nousevat selvästi, vaikka julkisesta keskustelusta voisi saada toisenlaisen kuvan, ministeri Leppä sanoi. Mikä muuttuu?...
2. Neuvostolla oli 3 keskeistä uutta ratkaisua, kertoi maatalousneuvos Kari Valonen. I Jokainen jäsenmaa tekee strategisen suunnitelman kansallista toimeenpanoa varten, jonka komissio hyväksyy.
3. II Uusi toimeenpanomalli. CAP on jatkossa tulosperusteinen kuten kaikki muukin EU-rahoitus. On oltava konkreettisia tavoitteita, joiden toteutumista seurataan indikaattoreilla. Jos tavoitteeseen ei meinata päästä, niin kannustimia (toimenpiteitä) voi muuttaa kesken kauden.

Gisteravond stemden christendemocraten, sociaaldemocraten en liberalen voor een deal die tot minimaal 7 jaar stilstand in de vergroening van het Europees landbouwbeleid (#GLB of #CAP) leidt. Een korte toelichting in een lang draadje. 🧵
De basiseisen waar een boer aan moet voldoen om subsidie te ontvangen blijven in de deal hetzelfde. Dat terwijl onderzoek na onderzoek toont dat deze eisen veel te zwak zijn en daardoor bijdragen aan het achteruit hollen van de natuur. besjournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.10…
Voorbeeld: het is cruciaal dat er een goede basiseis komt om ruimte voor de natuur te creëren op landbouwgrond (houtwallen, bloemenstroken, biodiverse slootkanten). Maar de deal neemt alle achterdeurtjes waardoor die eis nu niet werkt gewoon over: "Using existing flexibility".

Mentre si discute di pettegolezzi, il futuro del clima, della biodiversità e del cibo - in altre parole, della vita - è stato devastato da un voto in sordina e antidemocratico al Parlamento Europeo, completamente ignorato dai media. #FutureofCap
Un accordo sottobanco tra lobbisti delle multinazionali agricole, il @EPPGroup i popolari (fin qui niente da stupirsi), @RenewEurope (centristi belleparole tipo Macron e @matteorenzi) e gli incredibili @TheProgressives (tra cui @pdnetwork), ha permesso di bypassare discussione...
…seria, di tradire ogni intento di #EUGreenDeal, #EUFarm2Fork, agricultura biologica e le altre belle parole.
Hanno dato il colpo di grazia definitivo alla tutela della biodiversità, alla mitigazione delle emissioni per fare un favore agli amici lobbisti.

Die Abstimmung über Agrarhilfen, in der CDU/CDU/SPD/FDP 400 Milliarden resolut an Umwelt, Grundwasser & Nahrung schädigende Agrarindustrie ausschütten wollen, wurde überraschend auf heute Mittag vorgezogen - um weiteren öffentlichen Protesten aus dem Weg zu gehen... Smiley!
#CAP
Dieses Vorziehen ist absolut unüblich, viele Parteien erarbeiten gerade erst unter größtem Zeitdruck (mit Deadline Mittwochmittag) die Abstimmungslisten...
Eine luxemburgische Grüne schreibt, sie hätten gestern Abend um 20.30 Uhr durch Zufall von der Vorverlegung erfahren. Es geht um die größte Summe im EU-Budget für die nächsten 7 Jahre.

Politicians have mastered the art of "we tax X to invest in Y", egged on by #Thaler aficionados thinking that #Nudge is not lying, but it should be properly called by its name: Bulls**t. None of them ever bothered to unravel the intricacies to make that remotely true. (2/11)
That's because one of the principal functions of money is being FUNGIBLE: the bank note you hold in your hand has infinite potentialities, good and bad, up to its face value limit, irrespective of the way you earned it. It could be stolen or hard earned, it doesn't care.(3/11)

WATERFALL THREAD ON #RecoveryFund: Sit back, it's long.

Few people outside the finance world are familiar with CDO structures. bit.ly/2ZKcaTZ @jeuasommenulle @macrodesiac_ @DavidBCollum @amlivemon @nglinsman @Halsrethink @RobertMCutler @vtchakarova @chigrl (1/13)
And yet, the concept of "seniority" is pervasive in our daily lives. everyone prioritizes expenses, otherwise we'd see at least someone live a s a vagrant but driving sweet exotic cars. But we need a roof over our head and food on our table first. (2/13)
Institutions don't "Eat", but they have their own priorities betrayed by behavior: we are NOT what we say we are, we are what we DO under duress. In CDOs, this is expressed as a "waterfall", i.e. money falls into tubes filling containers in a predetermined order. (3/13)

#AgriculturalProductivity 🔥🔥

1/ From the ZW statistics shown, tobacco&cotton are the only agricultural commodities that are being exported that are in the #Top10ExportGoods (2018).

There is need to consider agricultural productivity commercially as a vibrant economic sector. Image
2/ From this ir.uz.ac.zw/bitstream/hand… & the book image below, one realises that the Gvt sets producer price for tobacco, cotton, maize, wheat & soyabeans.

Ironically this is a carry over from the UDI (1965-79) statist policies. This is against how the market needs to operate. Image
3/ The agricultural value chain (#AgVC) & business environment consist of: ImageImage

Some really good #ClinicalPearls about #Psittacosis with a short #medtweetorial

Something mentioned in today's @CPSolvers #VMR

It's not something that I commonly ask patients with #CAP but I think I will insert the question about them owning a parrot or bird into my questioning
In the 1960s and 1970s it was the model organism that laid the foundation for modern chlamydia research.

Psittacosis is also known as avian chlamydiosis, ornithosis, and parrot fever.

It causes an atypical pneumonia when it infects the lungs.
All birds are susceptible, pet birds and poultry are most frequently involved in transmission to humans but not human to human

It can also be found in non-avian domestic animals, such as cattle & sheep, but cases of clinical disease & transmission to humans have not been proven

🗞️ IPES-Food co-chair Olivier De Schutter spoke to @POLITICOEurope on the 'world after #coronavirus' and the shortening of #food supply chains 👇

"Never before has there been such an incredible interest in short supply chains," said @DeSchutterO.

bit.ly/2YhaWPs
"There's absolutely no doubt in my mind that there'll be more and more calls for re-localized, 're-territorialized' #foodsystems," Prof De Schutter said.

This was echoed by @EUAgri Commissioner @jwojc, who called for "better care of #local markets" and shortened supply chains.
Prof De Schutter also told #Politico's @zosiawanat that there was room for improvement in some #EU policies such as public procurement, competition, #CAP and #Farm2Fork.

They could be improved to give advantages to local, smaller and organic #farmers, said the article.

#Live in Brussels 🇪🇺 IPES-Food's Nick Jacobs is at the European Committee of the Regions (@EU_CoR) for an exchange of views on the impending #EUfarm2fork Strategy.

Nick will be joined by @GuidoMilana @rozathun & @SchilthuisGijs.

⌚️ We'll bring you updates from 15h30 CET 👍 Image
The @EU_CoR is exchanging views on #EUFarm2Fork Strategy. For our director Nick Jacobs, initial thinking on the #F2F has taken an "à la carte approach", failing to map out a real "paradigm shift".

#FarmToFork #CommonFoodPolicy

Some thoughts 👇
1. #EUFarm2Fork targets not enough. #Pesticide & AB reduction targets won't be effective w/o viable alternative products/production systems. 2. Techno-fixes (gene editing, feed additives, #data-driven ag) reinforce current system & entail trade-offs! 3. Support for #agroecology? Image

IPES-Food advisor Francesco Ajena is live at a packed @EU_Commission stakeholder consultation on the #EUFarm2Fork Strategy.

#F2F #CAP #FutureofCAP #EUGreenDeal

Some important reflections at this crucial time 👇 Image
"#CAP provides the tools to make #FarmtoFork successful, but also might allow for its tools & budget to make the #F2F a failure. We need to identify the main gaps & possible inconsistencies b/w CAP and F2F. We must address them early instead of waiting for the next CAP reform."
"In the #EU we need a truly integrated food policy, not an à la carte set of proposals. Proposals need to be mutually reinforcing. With objectives including production systems, food environments, food chains, #trade and access to and protection of #land and natural resources."

[ THREAD] Our reaction on the #EUGreenDeal. @SebastienTreyer says : « this text meets our expectations, delighted to see the ambition on #carbonneutrality, #biodiversity protection and zero pollution. It is a project for Europe and a message from Europe to the world ».
« But we will also need strong messages on industrial policies to convince the most skeptical. We have questions on the means : after the just transition fund for countries still coal-dependant, what is left to implement the rest of the #EUGreenDeal ? »
@SebastienTreyer says. 👇🏼
« It is positive to open discussions on macroeconomic policies but governance issues of the #EUGreenDeal will have to be monitored. For ex, how will the #FarmtoFork strategy be articulated with the #CAP? » @SebastienTreyer asks. 👇🏼

📈€440 billion investment to benefit over 1 million SMEs

✅1.1 million jobs created

🏠Half a million affordable housing units built or renovated

1. After the 2018 @IPCC_CH report spelled out the difference between a 2 Degree and 1.5 Degree world, here's a few thoughts on tomorrow's #SRCCL report that will put the spotlight on how the way we use our land will affect our odds of hitting 1.5 degree and what this means for EU
2. Firstup, despite the deeply worrying state of land use, the existence of the report itself, ahead of the @UNClimateSummit this September and two crucial COP's next year on climate and biodiversity is an important step forward
3. Secondly, it represents a growing consensus on where the solutions are; restoring ecosystems (in particular peatlands), reducing meat consumption and production, securing indigenous land rights

Some 3% of farms now account for 52% of EU farmland, and 20% of farms receive 80% of payments under the #CAP.

The #CommonFoodPolicy argues to reform the payments mechanism of CAP via 4 key points (among others):

#FutureofCAP Image
i) shifting from an area-based payment logic to composite criteria (labour intensity, farm size, regional specificities, etc.) with mandatory redistribution to small-scale farms.

ii) capping payments to individual farms.
iii) providing a positive definition of an active farmer at EU level.

and iv) introducing a minimum percentage (instead of a ceiling) for payments to young farmers.
