#EUGreenDeal/#farmtofork-type policies risk

- diminishing farmer competitiveness in domestic & export markets
- driving up worldwide food prices & reducing societal welfare
- increasing # of food-insecure people in most vulnerable regions… h/t @drdairy50
"declines in production & trade, coupled with the projected increases in food commodity prices, would significantly reduce the EU’s GDP, especially if adoption was limited to the EU. In that case, the EU’s decline in GDP would represent 76% of the decline in the worldwide GDP"
"By 2030, the number of food-insecure people in the case of EU-only adoption would increase by an additional 22 million more than projected without the EC’s proposed Strategies. The number would climb to 103 million under the middle scenario & 185 million under global adoption"

MONDAY: #AgricultureBill is back in the Commons.

Most MPs are well-intentioned & #BackBritishFarming, but the truth is, unless standards are enshrined in law, there is a high probability risk farming will be undermined. .@Keir_Starmer understands this.

.@trussliz thinks it's worth undermining our food, farming, animal welfare, countryside & Enviro standards to get trade deals, but has she weighed up the trade-offs? Trade deals gains are tiny compared to losses from trashing our standards —not just £ losses.

Losses from trashing our food, farming & environmental standards are not limited to the 25-50% of British farms DEFRA expects to go bust.

There'll also be massive costs to public health (those who suffer + the #NHS) from food produced by methods banned here.

@JuliaKloeckner @WirHabenEsSatt2 @S_Richartz Als nächstes forderte Sabine Yacoub von @BUNDjugendRLP eine vielfältige Landwirtschaft mit geschlossenen Kreisläufen. Wir brauchen eine Abkehr der Landwirtschaft von Agrarexporten, hin zu regionalen Lieferketten und fairem Handel – das hat auch Corona gezeigt!

#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."

Live now in #Brussels, IPES-Food's Olivier De Schutter (@DeSchutterO) joins the @EURACTIV panel debate on sustainable #food systems:

"Does the EU's #FarmToFork strategy have all the answers?"

For the latest from Olivier, follow us @IPESfood + #SustainableFoodEU #EUdebates 🇪🇺🌍 Image
@DeSchutterO @EURACTIV @eaAgriFood @SciFoodHealth @ClubofRomeEU @BarillaCFN @EU_EESC @chantalwclement @_RajPatel @fr_ajena Olivier De Schutter spoke to us earlier ahead of tonight's #SustainableFoodEU debate @EURACTIV.

On the EU's #FarmToFork strategy, it is clear that for one thing, we need to "gradually move towards a 'real costs' approach to prices". What does this mean? 👇
@DeSchutterO @EURACTIV @eaAgriFood @SciFoodHealth @ClubofRomeEU @BarillaCFN @EU_EESC @chantalwclement @_RajPatel @fr_ajena "You cannot hope for #consumers to shift diets - towards #plants-based diets, to buying fresh, local, seasonal foods & less processed foods - without ensuring we get the prices right... ensurin good practices are rewarded, and negative externalities penalised!" - @DeSchutterO

[ 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. 👇🏼
