Open letter for full alignment between the reformed Common Agricultural Policy and the European Green Deal

30 EU-level organisations and 8 national coalitions, which jointly represent 250 organisations from the food, farming, environmental, and public health sectors, urge EU leaders to take strong action to align the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) with the Green Deal. We call on EU leaders to: (1) give the CAP a clear progressive 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.
