The Farm to Fork Strategy - what do studies say about its impact on the European livestock sector?
The Farm to Fork Strategy – what do studies say about its impact on the European livestock sector?
13 October, 11:30-12:30 via Zoom
|A lot is said about the role livestock plays in our food systems, and the Farm to Fork and Biodiversity strategies have been driving debates on what sustainable food systems and food production should look like in the future.
The strategies propose ambitious EU actions and targets to accelerate the transition to a fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food system, while preserving food affordability and generating fairer economic returns.
But these proposals have raised many questions and generated several studies which look at their potential impact on our food systems, both within and outside the EU.
Watch our Dialogue between Scientists and an MEP to discuss findings from some of these impact analyses ahead of the upcoming vote in the European Parliament.
