Conference on Rural Development Programmes in Action post 2014: How can they work towards a healthier environment?

15 September 2014

CEEweb, ADEPT Fundatia, the EEB and BirdLife Europe are organizing a conference on the new Rural Development Policy and Programmes at the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) on 15 September.

Last December, after a long saga of negotiations, the reformed Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) finally got published in the official journal. There is huge concern about the extent to which the ‘greening’ of Pillar 1 will deliver for the natural environment. Because of this, it is crucial that Rural Development Programmes (RDPs) deliver efficiently and effectively on environmental objectives. Member States have strategic choices to make in their RDPs, and, if the right choices are made, these can achieve significant outcomes for biodiversity, soil, water and climate.

Why should you attend?
By the end of July, all Member States shall have submitted their RDPs to the European Commission. This conference will represent a timely opportunity to discuss with a wide range of people the content of these proposed national / regional Rural Development Programmes, and to check whether they address environmental needs and challenges in an appropriate and tailored way.

For any practical question, please contact Charlotte Lepitre at agribidi.intern@nulleeb.org

For questions related to the content please contact Faustine Defossez, EEB Senior Policy Officer: faustine.Defossez@nulleeb.org
