Hello and welcome to our November newsletter.
With CETA signed, a new chapter opens on how the corporate agenda, civil society, global trade blocks and people/planet friendly regulations unfold.
It might now seem done and dusted, but campaigners point to a number of significant upcoming hurdles in the controversial CETA ratification process.
We've tracked CETA
and since 2013 TTIP
as both - if fully implemented - would seriously impact on farming and food standards in Europe. See our dedicated recent news on CETA in this newsletter for more.
We've also kicked off our #AfterCAP debate, where a wide range of experts from many perspectives will contribute their vision of a better food, farming and rural policy for the EU. We start with a thought provoking opener from Jan Douwe van der Ploeg. In it, he makes a compelling case for what he calls integrated rural development. Get in touch via facebook
, article comments or email - we need to talk!
