Susanne Padel attended the IFOAM EU Group’s 6th European Organic Congress "Smart change - towards a sustainable CAP" in Copenhagen. It featured a high level policy panel discussing the CAP reform and the launch of a new dossier to evaluate the EU organic regulations.

The Deputy Director General of DG Agriculture and Rural Development, Jerzy Bogdan Plewa, described the Commission proposals for the CAP 2014-2020 a “greener” and more sustainable agriculture policy. He stated that support for organic farming remains an essential ingredient in the policy recipe for sustainable food production. In a workshop on CAP-reform Susanne Padel presented a preview of the results of DG Agri evaluation study, publication of the results is expected next week.
