Alternatives for a fair and sustainable partnership between the EU and Mercosur: scenarios and guidelines

It is clear to us that we need to pursue another partnership between the EU and Mercosur: a fair and sustainable partnership that puts people and the planet first. How can we achieve this? We commissioned this study to open the discussion on a new, forward-looking approach, and a much-needed paradigm-shift.

Greens/EFA condemns Commission and MEPs’ attempts to re-open Common Agricultural Policy

MEPs will vote on the urgent procedure requested by the Agriculture Committee to hurriedly re-open the newly-implemented and painfully-negotiated Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), following the Commission’s proposal of 15 March 2024. This will make exemptions and widen derogations to the CAP’s environmental conditionality rules.

Without farmers, there’s no food

Farmers work hard to provide us with food. Day in, day out, with hardly any holidays or breaks. We all know that - and that is why they deserve to earn a decent income.

Right now, farmers are in distress. The profiteering in our food-system has reached its limits, with powerful agri-companies and supermarket chains making billions while most farmers struggle to make ends meet.

Politicians that pretend there is a contradiction between nature and farming are trying to hide their own failure. They are lying. There is no contradiction - farming and nature can only work hand in hand. Farmers know that in their hearts. And it is up to us to make that possible.
