Farm and food sectors need to adapt to the effects of climate change and play an active role in climate change mitigation. To contribute to the climate debate, Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Elisabeth Köstinger (EPP), Bio Austria (www.bio-austria.at) and the IFOAM EU Group (www.ifoam-eu.org), in cooperation with the Round Table on Organic Agriculture and Climate Change (RTOACC), invite participants to discuss the role organic farming can play in reaching the EU climate change goals. The Round Table on Organic Agriculture and Climate Change was founded in 2009 at the Copenhagen Conference on Climate Change with the support of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO). It is coordinated by FiBL.
This event offers an opportunity for policymakers, civil society and other stakeholders across the food and farming sector 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 within the EU Policy Framework and the role of organic farming can play in reaching this goal.
The provisional programme is available below.
Access to the European Parliament can only be guaranteed for participants who register at least five working days before the event. Please register with the form available below.
