• About

    The farming sector in Europe employs almost 30 million people and rural areas account for 90% of the EU’s entire territory and are home to 60% of its citizens. Since CoR members represent regions across the EU, the Committee of the Regions pays considerable attention to policies such as the Common Agricultural Policy and the long-term protection of Europe’s rural areas. The Committee also covers issues such as food and food safety, GMOs, animal welfare and plant health, biodiversity, health, fisheries and maritime policies.
