A new vision for agriculture
momagri, movement for a world agricultural organization, is a think tank chaired by Christian Pèes.
It brings together, managers from the agricultural world and important people from external perspectives,
such as health, development, strategy and defense. Its objective is to promote regulation
of agricultural markets by creating new evaluation tools, such as economic models and indicators,
and by drawing up proposals for an agricultural and international food policy.

« Momagri continues to shed light on upcoming debates »

Momagri Editorial Board

As the public hearing on the forthcoming Common Agricultural Policy opened on 2nd February, the Momagri think tank continues to shed light on upcoming debates.

In a position paper, we give a critical analysis of the Agricultural Markets Task Force’s report on agricultural markets. Momagri's analysis of the main assessments and proposals in the report focuses on such crucial issues as risk management, improving market transparency and contracting (Article 1).

Which roads to reform will Brussels take for after 2020? By setting up aid for dairy reduction a few months ago, the Commission showed it was finally prepared to use the prerogatives set down in the latest reform to deal with the dairy crisis. Is this not a sign that state regulation still, more than ever, serves its full purpose? This is in any case what we are advancing in our latest press release (Article 2).

Momagri is also a driving force for generating proposals through its White Paper which will soon be updated. In a video interview with the magazine Terre-net, Frédéric Courleux recalls the founding principals specifically through the plea in favour of the establishment of counter-cyclical aid (Article 3).

Because reinforcing agricultural policies is not just a European issue, we have been looking at a recent decision by Cairo which has just announced that it no longer wants to support the domestic price of wheat above the international price. How should this decision be understood when wheat is a strategic commodity for the country? (Article 4).
