Can the Market work for Nature?
Uppsala, Sweden; June 4th - June 6th 2007
A central plank of the Mid-Term Review (MTR) of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has been the decoupling of support payments from production, freeing farmers to respond to the market. Meanwhile the importance of High Nature Value (HNV) farmland for maintaining Europe’s biodiversity is being given considerable prominence, with its support becoming a major goal of the EU’s rural development policies.
82 people attended EFNCP’s latest conference, organised in co-operation with the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation, to discuss these issues.
- European Commission (DG Agriculture),
- French Minister of Environment,
- The Swedish Board of Agriculture,
- The Federation of Swedish Farmers
