The European Green Deal: The Force of the EU’s Farm to Fork Strategy and Biodiversity Strategy to Build Healthy and Sustainable Food Systems
July 23, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 10:45 am
This virtual event is co-organized by the European Commission and IFPRI. For most updated information and to RSVP, visit their event and registration page.
The “Farm to Fork” Strategy, adopted by the European Commission on 20th May, 2020, is part of the Commission’s Green Deal and integral to Europe’s ambitious response to climate change and environmental challenges along the food chain. It reflects the ongoing transformation of food systems worldwide and the goal of making Europe’s food system the gold standard for sustainability.
Along with the “Biodiversity Strategy”, the European Union seeks to demonstrate that green best practices can be successful in jointly increasing economic efficiency and environmental and climate sustainability in European and global agriculture.
Join us to hear presenters share on the link between “Farm to Fork”, the future of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy and the international dimension.
