Policy panel: “EU policies and global FNS”

European policies affecting global markets. What is a balanced strategy towards EU policies affecting FNS through their impact on global agricultural markets? Good soils, water, biodiversity are determinants of long term food and nutrition security but EU agricultural policy does a poor job at protecting natural capital. EU agricultural, bioenergy and environmental policies have indirect global impacts that must be taken into account. EU trade policy has ambiguous food security and environmental impacts that should be considered explicitly in sustainability impact assessments for their combined implications for FNS.
