Biodiversity
Balancing nature protection and agricultural production

Agriculture faces many challenges. It has to produce more food, feed and other raw materials to satisfy the increasing demands of a growing population (we need 70% more food for an additional 2.3 billion people by 2050).

Agriculture must also contribute to economic prosperity and social well-being, while protecting natural resources such as soil, water and biodiversity. Conscious of the positive role that we can play, ECPA is working with partners to demonstrate and promote best management practices that benefit harvests and biodiversity.
