Open letter to President von der Leyen: Withdraw the CAP

Food & Water Action Europe is joining over 25 other NGOs in a joint letter to Commission President Von der Leyen, to call on the European Commission to withdraw its proposal on the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). We demand the European Commission to table a new proposal that is based on supporting farmers in the transition away from industrial agriculture, to a Green Deal-compatible CAP, investing the hundreds of billions available in farming practices that work with nature and within ecological limits, support citizens’ health and wellbeing, and thus safeguard our ability to produce food into the future
