Open letter calling for full alignment of the reformed CAP with the European Green Deal
Together with NGOS and national coalitions from across Europe, IFOAM Organics Europe urges the President of the European Commission, the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, and the Conference of Presidents of the European Parliament to align the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) with the priorities of the European Green Deal. The European ambition to convert at least one quarter of the farmland to organic farming within the next ten years is only reachable if appropriate measures are available to remunerate farmers who deliver this additional environmental performance. The CAP Strategic Plans must help to transition to organic and agroecological farming through both CAP pillars, along with measures to raise consumers awareness on the benefits of organic farming for biodiversity, soil health, air and water quality.
