an independent NGO based in Paris, providing a platform for agri-food and rural actors working towards better food, farming and rural policies for Europe.
ARC2020 provides a space for informed agri-food and rural commentary from a number of perspectives. ARC2020 also facilitates debates and specialist series,
features both in-depth articles and breaking news, while keeping an especially close eye on the progress of policy reform and on agroecological best practice. Previously, ARC2020 was a multi- stakeholder platform that involved over 150 civil society networks and organisations (from 22 EU Member States) all working on issues affected by the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The platform was set up in 2010 ahead of the previous reform of the CAP in order to give civil society a strong voice in the current reform debate, prepare common actions across European borders and mobilise individuals and organisations beyond traditional stakeholder interests.
