EIT Food’s White Paper on Sustainable Agriculture – More than Just a Transition?

Agriculture plays a significant role in relation to climate change and biodiversity loss. There is an urgent need to implement mitigation and adaptation actions to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.  

In this paper, EIT Food reviews some of the most promising mitigating and adaptation solutions based on e.g., advanced digital tools or regenerative practices, that not only support a transition to more sustainable agriculture but also help European farmers to meet the sustainability targets set out by the EU Green Deal and the new Common Agricultural Policy.
