Distribution and targeting of the EU Common Agricultural Policy budget from a biodiversity perspective

As additional supporting material for our readers wishing to participate in the public debate on the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (see https://facultas.wordpress.com/consultation/common-agricultural-policy/), we recommend the review of the European Environmental Agency’s recent report “Distribution and targeting of the CAP budget from a biodiversity perspective.”

The EU has highlighted the importance of using the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) to prevent the abandonment of high nature value farmland and its intensification as a key action to halt biodiversity decline. The present report sets out to assess whether the current distribution of CAP funds is likely to favour the maintenance of farmland with high nature value (HNV). And it explores the extent to which CAP funds are likely to support the long-term economic and ecological sustainability of these HNV farming systems.
