Policy report “Roots of resilience: Land policy for an agroecological transition in Europe”

A collective of organisations, coming together under the banner of the Nyéléni Europe Food Sovereignty, have just released a new policy report on access to land named “Roots of resilience: Land policy for an agroecological transition in Europe“.

As Europe enters the 2020s, issues of sustainability will take centre stage with future-oriented policy frameworks such as the European Green Deal, the Farm to Fork Strategy, and the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform – all seeking to rise to the challenges confronting Europe in terms of food production, decent work, economic prosperity and climate change.

Land politics – who controls what land, how it is used, for how long, for what purposes and to whose benefit – is a central pillar of the debate. As politicians across Europe struggle to balance the urgent need for climate action with the need to strengthen equity and popular support for new policies, the risk of societal discord looms large, fuelled by farmer protests, perceptions of ‘Agri-bashing,’ and long-running tensions between conservation movements and agricultural communities.

Roots of resilience: Land policy for an agroecological transition in Europe” offers policymakers recommendations to counter these trends and take the goal of increasing access to land for agroecology in Europe seriously.

Read the report “Roots of resilience: Land policy for an agroecological transition in Europe“.
