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.

USA, Europe and Containment of China (Pascal Boniface, Valdai Discussion Club)

It’s in the interest of the European countries that Washington not take for granted an automatic solidarity in the event of war. Their interest is to avoid a new and uncontrollable escalation of tensions. The best way for the Europeans to prevent hawks from taking the lead in Washington is to tell America that their appreciation and behaviour depends on that of the US, writes Valdai Club expert Pascal Boniface.

The Great (Pay)Wall of Europe: How Banning Targeted Ads Would Harm EU Consumers and Lead to Job Loss in the Tech Sector (Daniel Castro, Europe)

The Internet was built on advertising. Advances in search, webmail, social media, music streaming, mobile apps, and more have all come because of business models dependent on revenue from online ads, especially targeted ads. They have had a huge impact—creating billions for both the businesses that use them to generate sales and those that monetize their services with them. Yet European policymakers are seriously considering banning them. So, it is worth understanding what would happen if the EU were to enact such a policy.
