    Policy briefing

    Les jeunes agriculteurs européens devront faire face à davantage d'obstacles pour rentrer dans l'agriculture, car la terre est consolidée rapidement dans relativement peu de grandes exploitations. La terre est encore plus inégalement répartie que la richesse. Une forte baisse des petites fermes européennes est en cours avec des conséquences néfastes pour la sécurité alimentaire, l’emploi et le développement.

    Este informe sobre políticas analiza si el objetivo de reducir el cultivo de cannabis es realista o beneficioso para Marruecos, qué significaría realmente para la principal zona de producción, el Rif — una de las regiones del país más pobres, con mayor densidad demográfica y con un medioambiente más frágil —, y qué implicaría para un desarrollo sostenible significativo. El informe presenta un breve contexto histórico, examina las últimas tendencias en el mercado del cannabis y destaca algunas de sus consecuencias ambientales y sociales, así como el debate reciente sobre la regulación en Marruecos y las políticas en Europa.

    Press release


    Amsterdam, 20 september

    Morgen, donderdag 21 september treedt een deel van het handelsverdrag CETA tussen de EU en Canada vorlopig in werking. Een coalitie van maatschappelijke organisaties- onder andere FNV, Greenpeace, Transnational Institute, Foodwatch en Milieudefensie vindt het onverstandig en voorbarig dat Nederland zich nu al aan deze dael commiteert. Het Europese Hof van Justitie doet nog onderzoek naar het  het investeringsdeel van de deal en in veel landen is het zeer de vraag of zij definitief gaan instemmen met CETA. Als één van de lidstaten 'nee' zegt, vervalt de hele deal alsnog.
