Strengthening food systems resilience and autonomy in times of crisis
The AFCC has the pleasure of inviting you to our networking event: “Strengthening food systems resilience and autonomy in times of crisis” which will take place on Monday 28th of November 2022 at the European Parliament hosted by MEP Marlene Mortler.
Geopolitical volatility, and in particular the war in Ukraine, greatly impact food security worldwide. In combination with climate change, it quickly became a legitimate concern, threatening the resilience of EU food production by jeopardising access to affordable food for many of our fellow citizens.
The EU agri-food supply chain is facing unique challenges, as a result of the rising prices and scarcity of energy and other essential inputs needed to guarantee food autonomy, leading to a compromised food supply chain in the EU, and negatively impacting rural and coastal communities.
The Agri-Food Chain Coalition (AFCC) is a joint initiative representing 12 associations across the agri-food system. Members represent European farmers, cooperatives, and companies from the agriculture and livestock sector, farm equipment, plant and animal breeders, fertilisers, crop protection, animal health, feed, biotechnology-based products, and the agricultural trade.More about this event
