Water scarcity and land abandonment

Water scarcity and land abandonment linked to adverse climate conditions will be the main issues discussed at the Informal Agriculture Council which will be held in Cyprus on 9-11 September. During a period where the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy is ongoing, the attention of Member States will be on conserving Europe’s potential for the production of food, renewables and public goods.
