Europe’s wood pastures: condemned to a slow death by the CAP?

Written by Róbert Biró on Nov. 10, 2015

A test case for EU agriculture and biodiversity policy at the European Parliament

Not all pastures are just grass. In many regions of Europe, actively grazed pastures are enriched by more diverse vegetation, including shrubs and trees, which provide additional forage for livestock and numerous environmental benefits. Pastures with trees are known as wood pastures, and comprise some of Europe's most valuable agricultural landscapes.

This seminar will present case studies and discuss the effects of European policy on these treasures of the landscape, recommending policy changes to ensure their active management and conservation.
