This joint position paper with Renew Europe puts forward proposals focused on the resilience and sustainability of the food supply chain, the international dimension of food security, and other linked topics.
The effects of the crisis caused by Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine have put food security and the resilience of the global food system at the centre of the political agenda. Political resolve, concerted action, and innovative proposals are needed to address these acute challenges. In April 2022, the Renew Europe Group thus charged the Renew Europe Task Force on Food Security and Resilience of the EU Food System to work on short, medium and long-term solutions.
The short and medium term proposals specifically aim to respond to imminent problems caused or aggravated by the war in Ukraine. The proposals are built around four thematic blocks: resilience and sustainability of the food supply chain, the international dimension of food security, the availability and affordability of inputs, and investment in accelerating sustainability and autonomy both in the EU and in developing countries.
