Climate scrapped from Agriculture Council, and key report still missing

Just days before EU agriculture ministers were due to discuss the EU’s long-term climate strategy, it has been taken off the agenda. What’s more, a crucial report on the impact of agriculture policy on the climate has still not been released by the European Commission, although it was due in summer 2018. With the need for climate action more urgent than ever, it is alarming that the major role of farming in causing greenhouse gas emissions, and its potential to help absorb them, appears to have been pushed to the back seat.
