The future of farming: Can the new EU Common Agricultural Policy meet the climate challenge?

Show notes

How can the European agriculture shift from climate culprit to saviour? Earth Scientist and PIK Director Johan Rockström discusses challenges of the current Common Agricultural Policy - short CAP - reform and its ability to live up to the objectives of the Green Deal with two guests who work at the very frontiers of the CAP: Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice President of the European Commission, and Alan Matthews, Professor Emeritus of European Agricultural Policy at Trinity College. Topics discussed include:

  • farmer’s challenges and concerns
  • possibilities to reduce emissions like Methane and Nitrogen in agriculture
  • options of a reformed CAP to encourage a more resilient and sustainable way of farming
