By investing in this field, the European Union seeks to create the conditions for a dynamic and innovative farming and food sectors that manage to turn the high production and environmental standards into a competitive advantage. The intent is to ensure food production under future, increasingly unfavourable environmental conditions and move towards resource-smart, climate-smart and eco-healthy production and consumption.
