The current report aims to show where organic agriculture in the European Union (EU) stands in relation to the Farm to Fork strategy's goal that 25% of the farmland should be organic by 2030. It was written in the framework of the project "How can we reach 25% organic land in Europe by 2030?" funded by the LIFE programme and managed by IFOAM – Organics Europe. It represents one of the bases for the IFOAM Organics Europe report "‘Prospects & developments for organic in national CAP Strategic Plans", which is available at https://www.organicseurope.bio/content/uploads/2021/06/ifoameu_advocacy_CAP_StrategicPlansAnd25Target_202106.pdf
