CEEweb for Biodiversity, Fundatia ADEPT Transilvania and EEB are organizing the high-level conference ‘From a Grey Deal to a Green Implementation of the Future CAP? Conference on the rolling out of the greening measures and recommendations for biodiversity-friendly Rural Development policy post 2013’ on 29 October 2013 at the International Press Center in Brussels, Belgium.
The reform of the Common Agricultural Policy is still high on the policy agenda. Following the political deal that was concluded late June, there is a growing concern as regards the possibility of the future CAP meeting environmental challenges. As a result of the lack of ambition of the final deal, the success of the reform will rely a lot on implementation of the so-called ‘green measures’ under Pillar 1, and will also fundamentally depend on how National Rural Development Programmes are prepared by Member States.
Against this background, the conference aims to bring together policy makers, farmer organizations and non-governmental organizations to share and discuss experience on the previous CAP implementation, to describe the remaining opportunities, and to provide input to the future National Rural Development Programmes. The conference will consist of two blocks of presentations, the first one on the CAP reform and the remaining opportunities for the environment, the second one on the future RDP programmes. Each of these two sessions will be followed by a panel discussion.
The project is generously supported by the European Commission.
