Attracting young people to agriculture
Question for written answer E-002057-19
to the Commission
Roberta Metsola (PPE)
Generational renewal in the agri-food sector needs to be given a boost.
However, access to land and financing, as well as excessive bureaucracy, constitute formidable challenges, particularly for young farmers.
What is the Commission doing to address these issues? In particular, what measures is it taking to facilitate access to land that go beyond the reformed common agricultural policy and the other financial instruments forming part of the 2021-2027 programming period? What other measures is it taking to encourage young people to join the sector?
