A coalition of over 70 representations from the European farming community have signed an open letter calling on policymakers to support the EU Nature Restoration Law, initiated by Climate Farmers and Earth4All.
Sandrine Dixson-Déclève, Earth4All project lead and co-president of The Club of Rome, said:
“Changing farming practices to align food production with efforts to manage the climate crisis and restore nature is the only solution to ensure affordable food for all. Politicians railing against restoring nature are fighting to defend a broken system that must be overhauled for the sake of us all, farmers included. I urge policymakers to consider the long-term benefits of the EU Nature Restoration Law and not politicize the importance of environmental protection.”
The letter was sent to Heads of State and Government Leaders, Members of the European Parliament, President Ursula von der Leyen, Vice President Timmermans, and Commissioner Janusz Wojciechowski.
