The Place of High Nature Value Farming in the Common Agricultural Policy
European Parliament, Brussels (Jozsef Antall building Room 6Q1)
Tuesday 28th June, From 10.00 to 12.00
Hosted by MEP Csaba Sógor (EPP) and MEP George Lyon (ALDE)
High Nature Value (HNV) farming systems provide important environmental services maintaining some of Europe’s most threatened habitats and species and contributing to soil carbon storage, the protection of water resources and fire prevention.
HNV farming systems are also part of a rich cultural heritage underpinning an active land-managing rural population and sustaining a unique way of life in some of the most economically fragile areas in Europe.
This event will showcase a variety of HNV farming systems across Europe, explain their benefits and why greater support of these systems is needed in the new Common Agriculture Policy.
