ARC2020 November Newsletter

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, twitter, article comments or email - we need to talk!

Best wishes,

Dr. Oliver Moore and Luise Körner (Communications Team, ARC2020)

Will Pesticides be banned in Ecological Focus Areas?

Agriculture Commissioner Phil Hogan appears to be sticking to his guns on the banning of pesticides in Ecological Focus Areas, despite the opposition of 18 EU Member States. NGOs are focusing their efforts on MEPs. So what’s next?

Their berries may be traded - but not fruit yoghurt. When Ukraine stopped the export of unprocessed wood to the EU in order to avoid unsustainable cutting of wood and to help the wood industries to gain added value, the EU accused Ukraine of breaking trade rules. Hannes Lorenzen reports about war, peace, EU relations and rural ways in this letter from Ukraine
