More than 250 NGOs call for a green agricultural policy
28 February 2013
More than 250 NGOs have signed an open letter to MEPs about the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform currently going through the European Parliament. Civil society is concerned about the way that the current reform of the CAP has been managed by the European Parliament’s Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development (AGRI)
The Parliament’s AGRI Committee previously voted for a position that would essentially kill the greening measures created in the first draft of the CAP and take the policy backwards.
In March, the European Parliament will vote in plenary to decide upon its final negotiating position and civil society organizations ask all MEPs to grasp this last opportunity to act on behalf of real public interest.This should be a wakeup call for all Members of the European Parliament.
