Reforming Europe’s agriculture
Facing a near doubling of global food demand by 2050 due to population growth and rising demand from developing countries, there are growing concerns about the world’s food security. There is a pressing need to make better use of scarce resources such as water, land and energy while increasing food production to meet that demand.
As part of the current reforms to the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) post 20-13, Liberal Democrat MEPs campaign for a new agricultural model of production that is more nutrient efficient, more carbon efficient and more efficient in its use of key resources.
George Lyon MEP kick-started the debate on how to reform the CAP with an own initiative report based on sustainability and competitiveness criteria, overwhelmingly adopted by the European Parliament in 2010.
