Alongside 15 other organisations, we have written to the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen urging her to withdraw the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) legislative proposal and to abide by Union law and the Better Regulations Guidelines. This will help to guarantee that any future initiatives on EU agriculture respect the well-established safeguards for a high level of transparency, public participation and evidence-based decision-making. It will also help to ensure that all decisions likely to affect farmers, the environment and human health are taken in full consideration of the interests of society as a whole.

With this legislative proposal, the Commission has given in to the fake narrative that opposes the environment to agriculture, when evidence shows that they depend on each other. The measures proposed will only undermine the very jobs that the CAP is meant to support in the long-term.
