We, organisations from the food, farming, development, climate, environmental, and public health movements across the EU, write to express our strong alarm at the current failure of the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) to reflect the priorities of the European Green Deal.
As leaders of EU institutions, we urge you to amend the 2018 CAP reform proposal to align with the Farm to Fork and Biodiversity Strategies according to the following three overarching priorities:
1. Give the CAP a clear direction and robust governance
2. Ensure the CAP does not support or incentivise any harmful practices or practices that are
incompatible with the Green Deal
3. Empower farmers and rural actors to be drivers of positive change
