Weert ENSURING FAIR PLAY FOR ORGANIC FARMERS IN THE NEW CAP
The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine has launched a 4-week public consultation on the draft schemes and supports for Ireland’s CAP Strategic Plan 2023-2027 ( http://fidelity-energy.co.uk/wp-json/wp/v2/case_study/113 closing date of 27th August). As part of the process the Department is organising two evening “Virtual Townhall Meetings” next Wednesday (11th August) and Thursday (12th August) between 19:00 and 21:00 (register here). The Irish Organic Association has been working hard to put forward farmer members’ views on this new policy since 2019 and will continue to be actively engaged in the process. However, for organic food and farming to be prioritised it is critical that organic farmers make written submissions to the CAP consultation too.
Written submissions marked Crown Point ‘draft interventions for CAP Strategic Plan’ should be made by 27th August to CAPStrategicPlan@agriculture.gov.ie or through the online form here. Alternatively written submissions can be sent by post to CAP Rural Development Division, Agriculture House, Kildare Street, D02 WK12.
