Draft opinion

Amendment

believes that a shift by the agricultural sector, necessary due to a lack of natural resources, from primarily supplying food towards supplying a variety of (both food and non-food) bio-based products, will make it more sustainable as a sector;

believes that a shift by the agricultural sector, necessary due to a lack of natural resources, from primarily supplying food towards supplying a variety of (both food and non-food) bio-based products, will make it more sustainable as a sector;
believes that the focus of the agriculture sector should be on the re-defined CAP priorities;




Reason


There is concern that there is insufficient consideration given to the broader impacts of policy changes that may be politically expedient to adopt in the shorter term. A case in point in the Commission’s proposed new 5% cap on the use of food-based biofuels in the EU’s transport sector by 2020. This effectively halves the current target that industry, investors and farmers have been working towards. Stakeholders need relatively stable policies to ensure the sustainability and success of their sector – whether it be energy or food etc.

believes that a shift by the agricultural sector, necessary due to a lack of natural resources, from primarily supplying food towards supplying a variety of (both food and non-food) bio-based products, will make it more sustainable as a sector. When it comes to using food plants as energy products, care should be taken that extracting energy from food plants is kept to a minimum; other types of biomass should be given priority;




Reason


Production of biomass as a source of renewable energy alongside food production will play an increasingly important role in agriculture in the future. To avoid pitting energy and food needs against one another, energy production should be based first and foremost on biomass that is not made up of food plants.

Draft opinion

Amendment

believes that, in order to make optimal use of natural resources, strong interactions are needed between the agriculture, bioeconomy and science sectors in order to create a sustainable and more efficient agricultural sector;

believes that, in order to make optimal use of natural resources, strong interactions are needed between the agriculture, bioeconomy and science sectors in order to create a sustainable and more efficient agricultural sector. In view of agriculture's role as producer of biomass as a source of energy, care should be taken to achieve a balance between production of food products and biomass;




Reason


Provision of renewable energy will be an important agricultural sector in the future. Care should be taken here to achieving a balance between food and biomass production to enable a sustainable economy. Where possible, non-food plants should be used to create material for bio-energy.

AMENDMENT 4

THE EUROPEAN INNOVATION PARTNERSHIP:

AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTIVITY AND SUSTAINABILITY
NAT-V-022
Point 45
Amend text as follows:

Draft opinion

Amendment

to encourage Member States to spend a minimum of 25% of the total contribution from the EAFRD on fostering knowledge transfer and innovation in agriculture, forestry, and rural areas;

to encourage Member States to spend a minimum of 2510% of the total contribution from the EAFRD on fostering knowledge transfer and innovation in agriculture, forestry, and rural areas;




Reason


The amendment aims to ensure consistency with the CoR opinion on the legislative package on CAP reform adopted in May 2012: legislative amendment 30 on Article 5(1) of the Proposal for a Regulation on support for rural development by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) (COM(2011) 627) calls for 10% (i.e. EUR 1.45 billion per annum across the EU) to be allocated to innovation. There is so far no experience in EIP earmarking and, what is more, care must be taken to avoid hobbling the EAFRD through excessive earmarking.


AMENDMENT 5

THE EUROPEAN INNOVATON PARTNERSHIP:

AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTIVITY AND SUSTAINABILITY
NAT-V-022
Point 45
Amend as follows:

MÜLLER Emilia

BREIER Zsuzsa

KARTMANN Norbert

KROGMANN Martina

MARTENS Jürgen

REINHART Wolfgang

SCHNEIDER Michael






Draft opinion

Amendment

to encourage Member States to spend a minimum of 25% of the total contribution from the EAFRD on fostering knowledge transfer and innovation in agriculture, forestry, and rural areas;

to encourage Member States to spend an increased amount of minimum of 25% of the total contribution from the EAFRD on fostering knowledge transfer and innovation in agriculture, forestry, and rural areas;




Reason


As yet, there is no experience to draw on when it comes to encouraging EIP measures that fall under the EAFRD, which is why it does not make sense to stipulate minimum requirements, at least not in advance.
