Safety nets

An effort to safeguard the primary sector by furnishing farmers with a so-called “green card” subsidizing animal feed and fertilizer is a good example of the kind of safety nets that need to be created to lessen the negative impact of inflation, which is only expected to get worse over the coming months.

There is sufficient scope for initiatives to offset the consequences of the crisis at a wider, national, scale as well, and every possibility has to be considered so that this potential is boldly and cleverly exploited.
