CAP - Fit for the future of farming?

This one-day science policy dialogue will be held in Brussels on 21 November. Hosted by the European Environmental Bureau, BirdLife Europe and the German Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU), the event will review several questions associated with the current CAP and its reform post-Brexit.

The workshop is organized in the framework of a project funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety. The event will include the first presentation of the German TEEB study on the economics of ecosystem services and biodiversity. Attendees will then have the opportunity to engage with experts, policy-makers and stakeholders from the agri-food sector around the following questions:

  • Does the CAP still deliver on its own goals?
  • Is the CAP an efficient investment by taxpayers, what are its real costs and its real benefits?
  • Is the CAP coherent with the global sustainability goals (SDGs) proudly signed by European leaders for 2030?
  • How can we make EU agriculture policy fit for the future?
  • What needs to change to ensure long term value for taxpayers’ money?
