European Wood Pastures Manifesto and Country Reports


The European Forum on Nature Conservation and Pastoralism brings together ecologists,
nature conservationists, farmers and policy makers. This non-profit network exists to increase understanding of the nature-conservation and cultural value of certain farming systems,
and to inform work on their maintenance.

European Wood Pastures Manifesto

With the deployment of the new reform of the CAP in 2015, livestock farmers using High Nature Value pastures containing "too many" trees and shrubs are confronted with increased difficulties to receive the much needed EU support for their farming activities. This is threatening the viability of some of our most sustainable livestock farms, and the biodiversity maintained by such farming systems.

The Manifesto in several languages

The "green" CAP and permanent pastures - national reports show a fundamentally flawed model

EFNCP has published new reports looking at the application of the new CAP to permanent pastures in six Member States: Bulgaria, Estonia, France, Ireland, Spain and UK. As highlighted in this European Parliament Wood Pastures Policy Seminar, the overall picture is that mainstream CAP instruments in Pillar 1 fail to address the main challenges faced by semi-natural or High Nature Value pastures, and even exacerbate the threat of abandonment or damaging actions by farmers in some situations.
