At the same time as the Agriculture Council is meeting in Luxemburg to try to wrap up the future of the CAP, you will discover that the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) subsidy scheme and other policies are implicated, in a variety of ways, in this process of land grabbing and concentration, with all the negative consequences for the social and environmental dimensions of this policy.
At the press conference MEPS and distinguished guests from ECVC and "Hands off the Land" will be present to take stock of the governance of land tenure in Europe, and to listen to different proposals on adequate policy measures.
The press conference is part of the "Land issues in Europe: From Land Grabbing to Land Reform" event (see the programme enclosed).
