🧵The war in #Ukraine impacts #foodsecurity in #NorthAfrica & globally. We asked what can Europe do 👉🏼 Today @EU_Commission presented its communication on safeguarding #FoodSecurity & reinforcing the resilience of #food systems 👉🏼
📖 Humanitarian assistance to #Ukraine & beyond will come partly through financial contributions to the @WFP. At the same time, the EU asks member states not to enforce export bans (as in Hungary) to avoid a rise in food prices, inflation & further conflicts. @VDombrovskis
🌿But this means, the EU allows to freeze ambitions for sustainability & resilience – derogating from greening obligations under the #EUGreenDeal & #EUFarm2Fork. Additional area of 4 million hectares can now be used for food & feed production. @jwojc @JeroenCandel @jeroenkwakbo

Week 81 #FridaysForFuture. The European farm lobby is trying to get rid of any progress made towards the climate and biodiversity crises by exploiting Putin’s attack on Ukraine.
Here is a 🧵about how the EU is trying to disguise false solutions as #FoodSecurity concerns: 1/
There is increasing concern that @vonderleyen and @TimmermansEU will give in to pressures by the farm lobby to postpone or get rid of the upcoming EU Restoration law and a new law that controls the use of pesticides. 2/
The farm lobby is trying to convince @EUAgri to channel huge subsidies into the livestock sector, and are asking that areas used for biodiversity not be used for food but for animal feed. 3/

One of the most important topics of the 2020s. 1/4👇#EUFoodSafety #EUFarm2Fork
1. Similar problems as in IT: opensource vs proprietary. Economic dependencies can very quickly become nasty. Just take a look at Global Tech today #codeiscode #opensource 2/4
2. Should #newGMOs be introduced, a key factor will be: which code is executed and which is not? Code for pesticide resistance better not! Other codes, on the other hand, can promote #biodiversity (e.g., water-, land-consumption) 3/4

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.

Avec des député.e.s de 6 groupes, nous appelons à reconnaître clairement l'un des plus gros problèmes de notre système alimentaire : la production industrielle et la surconsommation de viande/produits laitiers. Et à en tirer les conséquences.…
1. Nous adressons cette lettre à @TimmermansEU, vice-Président de la Commission européenne pour le #EUGreenDeal, @SKyriakidesEU, Commissaire à la Santé, @jwojc, Commissaire à l'Agriculture et @VSinkevicius, Commissaire pour l'Environnement, les Océans et la Pêche.
2. Nous vous écrivons au sujet de la publication imminente de la stratégie de la Ferme à la Fourchette (#EUFarm2Fork) portée par la Commission. Compte-tenu de la crise du #COVIDー19 en cours, nous pensons qu’une telle stratégie est plus nécessaire que jamais.

#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."
