Our priority is finding the right balance between food production and preserving our natural environment, both on land and at sea. We are convinced that these two objectives are interdependent and that we can effectively meet pressing economic and environmental needs by aligning sustainable food production with nature conservation.

We want to adopt an efficient and environmentally friendly agricultural model that is capable of coping with the challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss while guaranteeing the interests of farmers, consumers and rural communities.

To achieve this goal, we propose significant public and private investment in areas such as innovation, digitisation, education and training. We will ensure that these investments, which are cornerstones for strengthening the competitiveness and sustainability of the sector, prosper and guarantee decent living conditions for agriculture and fisheries professionals, as well as a future for the generations to come.

But, in order to preserve our most precious resource, water, we will strengthen the Union’s policies by establishing sustainable and effective management. We will promote water-efficient agricultural practices, investment in modern irrigation infrastructure, and establish regulatory mechanisms to avoid waste or depletion of water resources. Proper water management will be a major asset for food security in Europe.

We are determined to embrace digitisation and innovation as the pillars of modern and sustainable agriculture. By supporting the development of advanced agricultural technologies such as precision farming, the use of sensors, artificial intelligence and robotics, we aspire to increase the efficiency of farms and reduce their carbon footprint. This approach will help optimise resources and improve productivity while strengthening farmers’ position in the value chain.

We will pay particular attention to fisheries and aquaculture, recognising their fundamental role in food security. We firmly believe that the Common Fisheries Policy plays a key role in ensuring the sustainability of this sector. While highlighting the conservation efforts made over the last decade, we will stress the need to restore the balance between environmental imperatives and the economic and social needs of the sector.

Last but not least, traceability, transparency and a guarantee of the origin and food production methods will be essential pillars of our approach. We are committed to ensuring that consumers can be accurately informed about how food is produced in accordance with the environment and animal welfare.
