Comprendre les enjeux de l'agriculture

In response to multiple threats to global food security, including disruptions caused by El Niño and La Niña, conflicts in Ukraine and Russia, and export restrictions on palm oil by Indonesia, Europe is bracing for a potential food crisis. During a ‘Food Alert’ workshop in Brussels, officials from the European Union, food security experts, industry representatives, and journalists gathered to simulate crisis scenarios and develop prevention and response policies.

This initiative highlights the growing concern among governments regarding the security of food supplies amid supply chain disruptions and extreme, erratic weather conditions. Europe, despite being one of the best-fed regions in the world, acknowledges its vulnerability to potential multiple and simultaneous food crises, exacerbated by its dependence on imports for certain key products.

The workshop also explored solutions for reducing Europe’s dependence on imports and promoting healthier and more sustainable diets. Discussions on managing food reserves, monitoring stock levels, and preparing for animal-borne diseases highlighted the need for comprehensive action to strengthen the resilience of the European food system against future challenges.
