With the deployment of the new reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (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 latest problem with the CAP poses important threats to the viability of some of our most sustainable livestock farms, and to the biodiversity maintained by such farming systems. EFNCP has warned repeatedly about this issue, with policy seminars, exchanges with the European Commission, reports, and a previous successful Manifesto in 2012.
