The EU will play a “central” role in the way Irish farming will operate in the future.
That’s according to the Green Party MEP Ciarán Cuffe.
The European Union’s new Green Deal aims to transform the 27 member bloc from a high-carbon to a low-carbon economy over the next few decades.
Green issues such as reduction in carbon emissions are part of the proposed programme for government.
Ciarán Cuffe says the climate emergency will influence future Irish farming practices and that the EU will support the agricultural sector to make the change to become more carbon neutral.
