EURAF Policy Briefing 6. Agroforestry and Pillar II of the new CAP

 

Pillar II in the new CAP will give longer-term support to farmers for measures helping the environment and climate.  There will not be a menu of EU options for MS to choose from, but EURAF is suggesting to Member States: a) support for agroforestry establishment and maintenance on agricultural land (like the current sub-measure 8.2), b) support for grazed firebreaks in forests (like sub-measures 8.3 and 8.4) and an Agri-Environment-Climate Measure focusing on carbon sequestration (like sub-measure 10.1).
