Dutch Government Set to Buy Farms to Comply With E.U.’s Green Measures

Objectivity 4.1 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

The Dutch government has launched its Great Reset-style farmer buyout program. The government is set to buy approximately 3,000 private-owned farms and has allocated $1.4 billion to cover the program. The program is a voluntary option, but the Dutch government has previously suggested that if uptake is not high enough it may be forced to impose mandatory buyouts. This program is designed to make the country comply with the green objectives set by the U.N. and the E.U. to stop climate change. The government is planning to take this measure in spite of the growing meat and dairy exports from The Netherlands that sustains their economy.
