EU organizations join forces with farmers to fight climate change (John Crawford, Will Marshall, Rodrigo Santos, Rob Versloot, World Economic Forum)

  • Agriculture provides livelihoods for 10.5 million farms across the EU. The whole industry in the EU is responsible for about 10% of the region’s greenhouse gas.
  • This shows that the EU not only has the opportunity to set an example but must also take the responsibility to design agrifood systems that are good for people and the planet.
  • Agriculture can be part of the solution to remove greenhouse gas from the atmosphere while also increasing the resilience of the agricultural system and society to climate change.
  • Strong partnership networks are needed in making this a reality.
  • Working together with farmers instead of excluding them from the process, the ‘Carbon+ Farming Journey’ Coalition has shown initiative to transform the agriculture sector to benefit climate, people and society.

  • But he says it’s possible to break the cycle of distrust and rebuild public trust through factual information and demonstrable progress.
