    Abstract

    The European Farmers Coordination represents today 17 farmers’ organisations from 11 countries in Europe, from the EU or outside. The CPE is based in Brussels. We have been questioning the over-intensification of agriculture from 20 years. BSE: never again: we want to change the agriculture policies in Europe. My statement about agriculture practice, environment, policies and strategies will focus on following points: Intensive production still remains the model and receives great support from the CAP, with great damages for environment; During the last ten years, under pressure of public opinion , the CAP was just little greened, but not put on a sustainable way; Will the next CAP just add more green paint or can the next CAP stop the destructive industrialisation of food production and give priority to the interests of consumers, farmers, and environment? It is true that the EU has increasing concern about the damages caused by over-intensive farming. But it is also true that the EU never had the political will to stop over-intensive farming and to support sustainable family farming, even if the damages represent huge costs for the society.
