Conservation grazing and its relationship to the Common Agricultural Policy (joint ABC-EMPEG)
Many practitioners of pastoralism and extensive grazing, such as cattle farmers, don’t have access to European Union subsidies from the Common Agricultural Policy CAP when their livestock is grazing in protected areas. In this webinar we will present practical examples where conservation grazing is considered as an agricultural activity and where farmers are eligible for financial support like the area-based income payments. We will also dive into discrepancies between the Common Agricultural Policy and conservation grazing and argue why Member States need to adopt broader definitions of grasslands that also include scrublands, wood pastures and other grazed habitats as being eligible for CAP subsidies.
