Roles and Instruments for the First Pillar of the CAP
Brussels on 04th March 2003
In March 2003, a meeting was organised jointly by the EFNCP, WWF and Stichting Natuur en Milieu to bring together experts to discuss the European Commission’s proposal to introduce a single payments scheme in the future reform of the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP).
A report from the meeting examines the environmental implications of the MTR proposals and discusses how environmental concerns could be addressed wither through modifications to the existing package or through alternative approaches.
It suggests that reforms must be jointly pursued in the first and second pillars of the CAP at the same pace. The report is available on line and hard copies can also be obtained from the EFNCP, WWF European Policy Office or Stichting Natuur en Milieu.
