'Half a billion kronor to make Sweden 80 percent food self-sufficient': Deputy PM
“We must ensure that Sweden can become more self-sufficient, in part but not exclusively, through increased organic food production,” says Deputy Prime Minister Isabella Lövin. The Green Party’s proposal comes at a time when record temperatures in several parts of the world and drought in Sweden shed light on how climate change is already here, the Deputy Prime Minister argued. Sweden’s Green Party proposes that a parliamentary inquiry be appointed with the task of achieving the 80 percent self-supply goal. They’ve also proposed that funds for this shift towards organic farming be doubled and agricultural land for these purposes be increased to 40 percent.
