The 'Green Deal' and the 'Farm to Fork Strategy' of the European Union have the ambition to achieve efficient production and food chain through green policies to tackle the impact of climate change and by promoting the conservation of the environment. These strategies aim to achieve more sustainability of the food value chain, from the producer to the consumer.
In view of the support of the European Commission to the organic sector towards the achievement of the 25% target of agricultural land under organic farming by 2030 with the appropriate policy and legal framework, the panel will discuss the relevance of organic farming in Europe, and the impact that different types of measures and initiatives may have on the sustainable development of the rural areas as well as on the conservation of related components of the environment i.e., soil, water.
The panel discussion will provide a forum for sharing information and opinions on organic farming actions and initiatives towards a more sustainable agri-food sector and better protection of our environment.
