In 2015 started the implementation of the new funding period of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Thereby the Greening and the new rural development programmes were introduced. One main goal of these measures in the CAP is the improvement of biodiversity, which shall be reached through various approaches and through the improvement of advice.

The developed implementation dossier is structured into five requirements:

  • Types and amounts of measures must become much more efficient in quality and quantity.
  • Nature conservation advice for farmers helps to implement measures effectively and in accordance with local and operational conditions.
  • Offers for efficient nature conservation advice require practical training and a coordinated network.
  • Contents of training towards the implementation of nature supporting measures in agriculture must be sound and comprehensive.
  • Agricultural policy and educational training must be prepared at present for the implementation of the future CAP.
  • tet werden.

Please contact Norbert Wiersbinski to request the implementation dossier (in German language).
