Regenerative agriculture in Europe
Agricultural production systems are currently severely threatening climate stability and ecosystem resilience and constitute a large driver of environmental degradation. For example, there are severe impacts through the loss of species biodiversity and ecosystem services such as pollination, increase in soil erosion, declines in soil fertility, downstream damage to water
resources and degradation of coastal ecosystems. An increased sustainability and resilience of agricultural production in the face of these crises must be based on a systemic view that not only analyses how to mitigate the effects of the current multitude of global crises on agriculture, but also indicates what specific transformations are needed to reduce the contribution
of agricultural production itself to these crises.
