Cork Declaration 2.0

September 6th, a declaration " Cork 2.0", entitled "A Better Life In Rural Europe", was officially handed to the European Commissioner Phil Hogan by the participants of the Conference.

20 years ago, the first declaration of Cork allowed to introduce into the CAP the idea of a multifunctional agriculture, offering public goods to the whole society and not only food production. Since then, the second pillar of the CAP was developed. It represents 20 % of the budget of the Agricultural policy and promotes subsidies to the environment, to infrastructures, to diversification, the farm modernization, research, agrotourism …

It was recently widened to include all the instruments of management of the risk and the fight against climate change in agriculture.

The European Commission threw the idea of a second conference of Cork, 20 years later. In this city of the South of Ireland, more than 300 representatives of the rural world worked during two days to define priorities for the future.
September 6th in the evening, a declaration " Cork 2.0" was officially handed to the European Commissioner Phil Hogan by the team who synthesized the contributions of four workshops and about twenty workgroups. Jean-Christophe Bureau, professor at AgroParisTech and director of the UMR INRA - AgroParisTech Public Economics Unit is one of the co-writers of the final declaration.

The declaration of Cork 2.0 proposes 10 orientations for an innovative, including and integrated agricultural and rural policy: it insists in particular on the innovation and the transfer of knowledge favorable to the local development, the development of tools to manage environmental protection, a better management of natural resources and actions providing more coherence to the rural policies throughout EU.
