New approaches for CAP green architecture
Farmers play a key role in tackling climate change, protecting the environment and preserving landscapes and biodiversity. In its proposal for the Common Agriculture Policy, the European Commission sets high ambitions on environmental and climate change.
EU countries have to incentivize farmers to observe agricultural practices beneficial for the climate and the environment. The purpose of this seminar is to investigate new models for motivating farmers to produce more biodiversity and environmental services. Innovative practices from Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands are presented and discussed. Please sign up for this session using the form below.
