Zusammenfassung:
Das Podium bot Landwirtinnen und Landwirten sowie Entscheidungsträgerinnen und Entscheidungsträgern in der Politik aus Australien und der EU die Möglichkeit, weltweit führende nachhaltige und widerstandsfähige landwirtschaftliche Produktionsverfahren vorzustellen. Die Landwirtinnen und Landwirte aus Australien und der EU legten dar, wie sie neue Technologien einführen mussten, um sich an die herausfordernden klimatischen Bedingungen anzupassen und erfolgreich zu wirtschaften. Sie betonten, wie wichtig es sei, den Landwirtinnen und Landwirten die notwendigen Werkzeuge an die Hand zu geben, indem in Forschung und Entwicklung investiert und international zusammengearbeitet werde, um Wissen und bewährte Verfahren auszutauschen. Die Podiumsteilnehmerinnen und -teilnehmer hoben die Bedeutung stabiler rechtlicher Rahmenstrukturen hervor, in denen Entscheidungen auf wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen basieren, sowie der Aufrechterhaltung des freien und fairen Welthandels. Die Podiumsgäste waren sich darüber einig, dass dem landwirtschaftlichen Sektor auch in der Zukunft eine wesentliche Rolle dabei zukommen wird, die Welt mit nahrhaften Lebensmitteln zu versorgen, und dabei die Natur zu schützen und die Umweltbedingungen zu verbessern.
