Policy seminar: The European Union plans to tackle climate change, one value chain at a time

The European Commission (EC) Green Deal is a critical initiative aimed at making the whole of Europe climate neutral by 2050. A central part of the effort is the “Farm to Fork” strategy, Europe’s plan for transforming food chains—and the food systems of which they are a part—so that they are a gold standard for sustainability.

A Feb. 18 policy seminar explored the European Union (EU) experience in ongoing efforts to address the challenges of climate change and food systems, and the implications for food system transformation around the world. The event was co-organized by IFPRI and the EU, and moderated by IFPRI Senior Research Fellow Will Martin.
