The 20 pests on the list published by the European Commission in October 2019 are quarantine pests that have been identified as top priorities for EU Member States based on the severity of the economic, social and environmental problems they can cause.

Map of the week – Beach Litter – Cigarettes

Every year, millions of tonnes of litter make their way to our beaches, seas and ocean. It is estimated that 80% of this litter comes from land-based sources like beach littering, land-fills and street litter carried to the sea by untreated municipal sewage, rivers and flood water. It is thus no surprise that the top three litter items found on our beaches are drink bottles and caps, cigarette butts and cotton bud sticks. The map of the week shows the average number of cigarette related litter items along 100 metre segments of the European beaches.

The bacterium Xylella fastidiosa affecting olive trees, almond, grapevine among other important crops, as well as the Japanese beetle, Citrus Black Spot, Citrus greening and the Asian long-horned beetle are among the top ranking pests affecting plant health in Europe. This ranking has helped the Commission to list 20 quarantine pests as priority pests. The list is published today.

Press release: Local government officials demand that EU policies further support pastoralism to preserve a living rural fabric

​​Le Comité européen des régions, à l’initiative de Jacques Blanc (FR / PPE), maire de La Canourgue, a adopté à l’unanimité l’avis sur le pastoralisme lors de la session plénière d’octobre. La préservation de l’activité pastorale est nécessaire pour maintenir l’agriculture sur l’ensemble du territoire afin de préserver un tissu rural vivant , mais aussi pour atteindre nos objectifs environnementaux et climatiques soulignent les responsables des gouvernements locaux. Le maintien de l’activité pastorale permet également le développement du tourisme dans les zones rurales et la lutte contre les incendies et les avalanches. La politique agricole commune (PAC), mais aussi la politique environnementale et sociale doivent donc davantage prendre en compte le pastoralisme.
