In what can only be the start of a new era, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and the European Commission have announced measures to end archaic and painful animal testing.
While food systems does not yet have the place it deserves on this year’s COP27 agenda in Sharm el-Sheikh, it was addressed in important side-sessions.
COP27 did not advance commitments and did not show evidence of meaningful action by countries to further reduce global emissions.
Temperatures in Europe have increased at more than twice the global average over the past 30 years – the highest of any continent in the world.
Economic losses from drought, floods and landslides have rocketed in Asia. In 2021 alone, weather and water-related hazards caused total damage of US$ 35.6 billion, affecting nearly 50 million people.
The Commission promotes the short-term benefits of increased use of harmful synthetic fertilizers and supports industry interests rather than focusing on urgent reductions in excessive nutrient use.
