RBP network webinar on 22nd October

"Implementation of RBPS in the CAP 21-27"

As EU member states finalise their CAP Strategic Plans in the coming months, this webinar had the aim to explore what role RBPS might play in ensuring a more equitable and effective CAP to ensure food and environmental security. We heard examples from Ireland, the USA, Austria and Germany on how RBPS were implemented in the past and plans on how they are going to be integrated in the future CAP. We also got insights from case studies on results-based contracts from the CONSOLE project. Frank Vassen from the European Comission addressed the participants as "community of practice concerning RBPS" and encouraged them to carry on with their valuable work on implementing RBPS. The webinar was summarized by a presentation of Prof. Allan Buckwell who highlighted the necessary policies to provide food and environmental security in Europe. Read more
