Interview Green MEP Ciarán Cuffe on new CAP – Podcast

November 24, 2021

The new EU farm policy that has just been approved by the European Parliament, is a “missed opportunity” that won’t go far enough to help farmers or the environment.

That’s according to Green Party MEP Ciarán Cuffe who voted against the reformed CAP this week.

The new Common Agricultural Policy will come into effect in 2023. It aims to be “greener, fairer, more flexible and transparent”. But Ciarán Cuffe says the new CAP is an “outlier” that won’t effectively reduce green-house gas emissions or support farmers.

In the following interview Ciarán Cuffe speaks to EuroParlRadio editor Karen Coleman about the new CAP.

Out words: for purpose
