With the European Parliament elections around the corner, new EU leaders are about to take on their posts. CONCORD’s new paper puts these leaders’ priorities to the test and asks: “How will you work for sustainable development?”
CONCORD invited Mr. Million Belay to attend the agroecology event “Opportunities and challenges for European development policy” at the European Parliament on March 20th 2018, and to provide a first-hand experience of the positive impact of agroecology on the life and work of smallholder farmers in Africa.
The EU must ensure small farmers are protected against multinational agribusiness when encouraging private investment in agriculture.
To meet the food and nutritional needs of a growing population within our planetary boundaries, we need a shift in food production towards a highly adaptive, low carbon, resource-preserving type of agriculture and in-country value addition that benefits also the poorest farmers through higher incomes and improved access to safe, diverse and nutritious food.
