CEEweb organised a meeting on options and tools in reaching a greener Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) between 11-12 June 2014 in Budapest. While the reformed CAP is into force for the years to come, despite their very unsatisfactory content, NGOs should focus on the implementation and try to turn them to light green at national level. Indeed, one of the new characteristics of the reformed CAP is the flexibility left to the Member States for implementation. They will benefit from a great room for maneuver in the greening and thus, NGOs still have various means to influence Pillar 1 implementation as well as to channel greener practices into the Rural Development Programs. The goal of the event was to achieve this and to unite NGOs in the Central and Eastern European region.
