The CAP close to the finishing line - can the European Green Deal promises be kept?

Watch the recording of this event here.

Read the presentations by Prof. Sebastian Lakner and by Arc2020's Matteo Metta here.

On the verge of finishing Europe’s defining agricultural framework, a lot of important questions still have to be clarified. Many doubts persist, whether the overarching European Green Deal will be able to be implemented in the CAP. MEP Martin Häusling commissioned the Brussels-based science think tank Arc2020 and German CAP expert Prof. Dr. Sebastian Lakner to analyse the European Commission, European Parliament and EU Council positions on the CAP. Based on their results and recent developments in the trilogue negotiations, we want to look at what agreements have been reached and what is still possible for a more sustainable European agricultural sector.
