Agriculture is responsible for 10% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. Yet €58 billion of taxpayers’ money is spent annually to support environmentally-harmful agriculture.
The EEB is pleased to invite you to join the debate. A range of stakeholders from the EU institutions, industry, academia and civil society will present their views and discuss how better agricultural policy can help address climate breakdown.
This event is organised in cooperation with BirdLife Europe and supported by the European Climate Initiative (EUKI).
