Personal reflections on a food and European territorial policy

The successive reforms of the Common Agricultural Policy have been building and rebuilding a house which requires today a complete rethought and a reconstitution on new basis. We argue that today agricultural policies must give way to food and land policies. At European level, we proposed three pillars for a new Food and Territorial Common Policy (FOTERCOP). They will not be characterized by their financing as today (100 % Eu or cofinancing) but on their own characteristics: multiannual measures first; annual measures second; last but not least market management and food chain. 50 % of the funds could be invest for financing the necessary ecological transition. This will also require a new political, social and administrative logic and break the straitjacket of the current EU budgetary rules
