  4. The EU and its member states will spend over €191 billion by 2020 to help the bloc’s farming sector go green.
  5. The budget of the European Common Agricultural Policy is divided into two pillars: direct payments to farmers, and a fund for rural development. Member states are entitled to transfer money from one pillar to another. Such a decision needs to be communicated by 1 August, 2017, and will be applicable for the 2019-2020 financial year.
    An estimated 21% of these direct payments is earmarked for agricultural practices beneficial to the climate and the environment.
    For instance, France will use €10.8 billion from the first pillar in order to green its farming, followed by Germany (€7.3 billion) and Spain (€7.26 billion).
    The Rural Development Programme (RDP) of the new CAP will play a major role in modernising the EU’s farming sector.
    The EU’s contribution is €51.4 billion, while the total amount of member states contributions reaches €77.8 billion.
    Member states are urged to invest in measures to restore, preserve and enhance ecosystems, promote resource efficiency and support the shift towards a low carbon economy.

Did you know that under the Lisbon Treaty of 2009, which acknowledges that animals have feelings, the EU and its members must take animal welfare into account in all agricultural, fisheries, transport and research policy? 🐇🐄🐖🐓
As such, there is a ban on inflicting any avoidable pain or suffering. Requirements include i.e. breeds that are robust, able to adapt to local conditions and disease-resistant; the feed given to livestock should enhance their health and wellbeing.
