WWF Baltic Sea Eco Region Programme has recently released a report about Agri-environmental measures in the Baltic Sea EU Member states. These measures are the actions that the farmers can do to protect the environment and that go beyond mandatory regulations. These measures are supported by EU under the Pillar 2 in Common Agricultural Policy. However, as the Member States have great freedom to design the schemes in the national level, there is a great variety on implementation.
WWF’s “Sorting out the Goods. Agri-Environmental Measures in the Baltic Sea Member States” report assesses how Agri-Environment Measures are implemented around the Baltic Sea, how relevant they are to environmental protection and how the system can be improved.
The report can be found here.
