Civil society statement on the reform of European agricultural policies

6 March 2017

Joint statement by over 150 civil society organisations on the future of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The European food and farming system is broken: it is working for the interests of a few to the detriment of the majority of people, farmers, and the planet. A reformed CAP must empower fair and diverse faming economies, support a healthy environment, good animal welfare, and citizens' wellbeing, and be underpinned by participatory governance, citizens' empowerment and democracy.
