Journée européenne de l'accès à la terre: L'accaparement et la concentration des terres en Europe

 

Which policies for access to land and natural resources, and which agricultural policies, may bring about production models which create jobs and add value without destroying natural resources?

In preparation for the World Forum on Access to Land and Natural Resources, the CESE, AGTER, and CERAI invite you to join them for a day of discussions about Land grabbing and land concentration in Europe on November 16th, 2015, at 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the European Economic and Social Committee, Brussels, Belgium, 2 rue Van Maerlant, Bruxelles 1040, (Salle VM3). This European Land Access Day Conference is part of a series of regional conferences in preparation of the World Forum on Access to Land 2016, which is intended to be a ten-year follow-up to the World Forum on Agrarian Reform (Valencia, 2004) and the International Conference on Agrarian Reform and Rural Development (Porto Alegre, 2006).

Hearing

The EESC hearing on 14 February 2017 was an opportunity for all people who were interested in rural issues to meet, present work in progress and exchange ideas and knowledge – and get inspired by examples of successful projects and initiatives in other rural communities. Together we thought of better ways to empower the rural communities to play their full part in addressing vital policy areas such as food security, renewable energy, environmental protection and job creation.

For a multifunctional agriculture geared towards sustainability objectives

"I welcome most of the European Commission's proposals launched which, to some extent, incorporated the civil society's input on the reforms needed in the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). We welcome the enhanced focus on the environment. We at the EESC believe that CAP funds should in future be used to maintain and develop everywhere multifunctional agriculture geared towards sustainability objectives. ..."

Organisation: 

One in six people on our planet face a daily struggle to find enough food to live. Food insecurity is thought to affect, in one way or another, more than one third of the population of the ACP countries, mainly in rural areas. This is the reality we need to tackle. And since I am myself a farmer and engaged in farmers' organisations, agricultural resilience is an issue that lies particularly close to my heart.
