Food Vision 2030 is short-sighted say campaigners

In response to Food Vision 2030 published today, Friends of the Earth Director, Oisín Coghlan, commented:

"This industry-led plan for agriculture is not aligned with our international obligations on climate pollution, biodiversity and water quality. It is however just that, an industry plan noted by Government. And I welcome the fact that it explicitly acknowledges that final targets for reducing agricultural pollution will be set under the new climate law. I look forward to agriculture doing its fair share as the Oireachtas sets Ireland's first carbon budget in the Autumn and the Government sets challenging 5-years targets for every sector."
