REGISTER NOW – Can the new Common Agricultural Policy make space for nature?

The European Federation for Hunting and Conservation (FACE) invites you to register for the online event “Can the new CAP make space for nature? Bringing nature back to agricultural land” which is planned for 23 September 2020, 16:00-17:30.

Ahead of the European Parliament’s plenary vote in the October II session on CAP Strategic Plans, this online event aims to understand how the CAP post 2020, and especially GAEC no. 9 (conditionality) and eco-schemes, can help to reach the 10% target of agricultural areas under high-diversity landscape features, which the EC refers to in the Biodiversity Strategy for 2030.

The online event is organised by FACE, with interventions from:

Group of the European People’s Party (EPP)

    CAP needs to do more to support sustainable farming and healthy food and environment. It has lost this balance with expanding subsidised intensive industrial (polluting) farming. This is not in the interests of the citizens of europe or a good use of taxes.

    Hopefully the new CAP will be capable of including small game birds and nature in its proposals.
    To date it has not being consistent with its objectives of delivering a better environment for us all.
    It would actually seem that one strand was in complete contradiction of the other. Q
