Sealing the deal on a greener CAP?

The European Commission proposals for a new CAP were intended to make this policy for the forthcoming programming period greener and fairer. After one and a half years of negotiations the Irish Presidency is willing to find an agreement between the Council and the European Parliament and Commission. At the same time concerns are growing that this new CAP will not only fail to be greener but might even be going backwards in terms of its impact on the environment.

Against this backdrop, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) is organising a timely conference entitled 'Sealing the Deal on a Greener CAP?' on Wednesday 10 April to exchange views on the latest developments in the Parliament and Council.

The day will have a special focus on the key role the Irish Presidency will play in trying to seal the deal. It will be a tailored platform to debate whether the original purpose and ambition of the reform can still be secured and how. It will also mark the launching of a study EEB commissioned to the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP) which assesses the use of equivalence mechanisms for complying with greening requirements under the new CAP.
