EASAC: Regenerative agriculture in Europe

Agricultural production systems currently seriously threaten climate stability and ecosystem resilience and are a major driver of environmental degradation. For example, intensive agriculture affects the reduction of species biodiversity and ecosystem services, including pollination, increased soil erosion, decreased soil fertility, downstream water damage, deterioration of coastal ecosystems. Increasing the sustainability and resilience of agricultural production in the face of these crises must be based on a systemic view that not only analyzes how to mitigate the impact of the current many global crises on agriculture, but also shows what specific changes are needed to reduce it.
