In the framework of the 33rd Regional Conference for Europe in Poland, organised by the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations, Albania said it was very likely to meet the European Green Deal target of 25% of agricultural land under organic farming by 2030.
Ministers and government representatives from across Europe and Central Asia met at the conference to discuss the impact of the Russian war in Ukraine on agrosystems, and how to accelerate efforts to transform global agrifood systems.
Agriculture and Rural Development Minister Frida Krifca noted that many farmers are worried that the green transition will negatively affect their livelihoods and the ability to feed people at accessible costs. However, she explained that it is possible to make the transition while ensuring continued agricultural production to meet people’s needs.
The aim is to facilitate better food security, inclusive and environmentally friendly development, and better nutrition.
