The farm and food sectors need to adapt to the consequences of climate change and play an active role in climate change mitigation. To contribute to the climate debate, Elisabeth Köstinger MEP (EPP), Bio Austria and the IFOAM EU Group, in cooperation with the International Round Table on Organic Agriculture and Climate Change (RTOACC), invite you to discuss the role organic farming can play in reaching climate change goals. This event offers an opportunity for European policymakers, stakeholders from the food and farming sector, and representatives of civil society to exchange the latest information and research findings. The aim of the seminar is to discuss further strategies and measures to meet the climate challenge in agriculture and assess which measures would be appropriate to tackle climate change within the EU Policy Framework.
