Following the implementation of enhanced security measures in the European Parliament, unfortunately we are unable to provide accreditation to visitors who wish to attend our meetings, until further notice.
You can watch our meetings on the European Parliament website via the link below.
The Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development (AGRI) is responsible for scrutinising the European Commission's work related to agricultural policy. This mainly involves preparing reports for legislative proposals, falling under the co-decision procedure between Parliament and the Council, for adoption in plenary.
The powers and responsibilities of our Committee include the following policy areas: the common agricultural policy (CAP), animal health and welfare, plant health, agricultural products quality, forestry and agroforestry.
In addition to its legislative work, our Committee monitors the implementation of the CAP, and other important issues such as food security. In this respect, it closely cooperates with the Commission, the Council, other EU Institutions, and stakeholders.
The AGRI Committee has 45 full members and 45 substitute members, all of them very committed to their work.
Our website provides a lot of information, in all the languages of the EU, to allow you to follow our work: meeting agendas, live webstreaming of our meetings, reports and amendments, MEP profiles and contact details, etc. Enjoy your visit!
