Publishing an external study on the impact of the CAP on climate change, the Commission recognises the key role the CAP should play in climate action.
To contribute to the CAP post-2020’s crucial ‘climate action’ objective, Commissioner Hogan proposes to reward farmers that help reducing carbon.
The “Trees for Kids” scheme would support the planting of trees by school kids, complemented by educational measures on the importance of forests.
Environmental care and climate-change action are specific priorities of the future CAP and vital for the future of food and farming.
The European Commission includes stakeholders and citizens in shaping the future of food and farming in Europe.
