New Green House reports
A Just Transition in Agriculture
A new report by Anne Chapman of Green House, published by the Green European Foundation, as part of their transnational project, Just Transition, carried out with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation.
Like post-industrial areas agricultural communities have suffered from substantial declines in jobs and losses of what formerly held them together. There is a danger that, feeling ignored by seemingly prosperous cities, those in rural communities who have lost out turn to political extremists who at least to give them someone to blame for their plight, in the way that many in rural America turned to Trump in 2016. The decimation of agricultural communities is therefore something that we should all be concerned about. Agriculture needs a just transition as much as coal mining communities do, but whereas there is no future for coal mines in a zero-carbon world, there has to be a future for agriculture.
This report looks at the destructive impacts of modern farming and two ways forward to restore nature, the health of soil and farming livelihoods: regenerative agriculture and 'farming for nature'. READ MORE
