Agriculture - part of the solution in addressing climate change
Climate change was one of the main points of discussion during the meeting of the EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Dacian Cioloş with the Norwegian Minister of Agriculture and Food, Lars Peder Brekk, in Brussels, on the 18th of March. They both agreed that agriculture is "part of the solution" in addressing climate change, noting that, over the last decades, farming has already succeeded by reducing green gas emissions by 20% - which is way beyond that of the industry average.
Norwegian Minister Brekk and Commissioner Cioloş expressed their satisfaction on the completion of the bilateral trade negotiations and on the excellent cooperation between Norway and the EU. They've also agreed to stay in close contact, in securing a better functioning of the food supply chain both in Norway and in the EU.
