Plenary meeting of the Spanish Environmental Networks La Coruña, ES, 08/06/06 Environmental opportunities in the rural development 2007-2013:  Plenary meeting of the Spanish Environmental Networks La Coruña, ES, 08/06/06 Environmental opportunities in the rural development 2007-2013 Michael Hamell European Commission DG Environment Unit Agriculture, Forestry and Soil Slide2:  . Coexistence: agriculture & environment Water Air Soil Bio-diversity Landscape/use Influencing Agriculture Policy Environmental concerns Influencing environment Farming Slide3:  Environmental problems raised by changing farming situation and practice Water: Nitrates, phosphates, pesticides. Air: Ammonia, Greenhouse gases (methane and nitrous oxide), Pesticides. Soil: Erosion, declining organic matter, contamination. Biodiversity: Habitat disturbance and destruction, decline in farmland birds. Landscape: Threatened by intensification and land abandonment. Removal/change of features contributing to protection of water, soil, biodiversity. NB: Many positive aspects: CO2 sequestration, soil protection, protection of landscape & wildlife habitats etc. Slide4:  Two forces: intensification & marginalisation Intensification overuse of fertilisers and pesticides (inappropriate use), increase livestock density and overgrazing conversion of semi-natural grassland to arable lands, monoculture removal of landscape elements like hedgerows, stonewalls, ditches Marginalisation (abandonment) elimination of positive management practices such as: mowing of meadows insufficient grazing livestock to maintain grassland Results pressures on biodiversity but also water, soil and air elimination of species-rich semi natural habitats (meadows, pastures) decline and loss of biodiversity changes in landscape Example: 40% of all declining bird species in Europe affected by intensification and > 20% by abandonment Policy responses:  Policy responses Amsterdam Treaty – integration Communication « Directions towards sustainable agriculture » The EC Sustainable Development Strategy and 6th Environment Action Plan (2002 – 2012) Presidency conclusions Göteborg 2002 feeding into Lisbon Strategy Legislative responses Slide6:  EU legislative response Water Nitrates Directive (91/676/EEC) Relevant for nitrates, general good practice and phosphorus particularly when derogations are concerned. Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) Relevant for all agriculture through river basin management planning. Now working towards plans to apply from 2009 Slide7:  EU legislative response Biodiversity NATURA directives Wild birds (79/409/EEC). Habitats (92/43/EEC). The basis for nature protection and involving not just a managed network of sites but also more general care. Air National Emissions Ceilings (NEC) directive (2001/81/EC). Target to reduce ammonia emissions from agriculture (93% EU total). Air quality (1999/30/EC). Ammonia contributing to particulate matter in the atmosphere. Air Thematic Strategy 2005 with further targets for 2020. Soil and Landscape – currently through Annex IV of R1782/2003 (common to water, biodiversity, air, soil). EU legislative responses:  EU legislative responses Cross compliance (Council regulation (EC) n° 1782/2003) Farmers receiving direct payments must respect: Statutory Management requirements (Annex III). Good AGR and ENV conditions (Annex IV). Central role with respect to environmental and other legislative relationships of agriculture. Pivotal role with respect to: Excessive concentration and intensification Avoiding land abandonment. Farmer – general society relationship. Replacing good farm practice in rural development 2007-13 with however strengthened basis for agri-environment. Key requirement: good implementation of Nitrates and Natura Directives (even the MS with very difficult situation progress now). Environmental problems & rural development policy:  Environmental problems & rural development policy Main environmental priority areas to be addressed by rural development policy: Biodiversity/Natura 2000: halt the loss of biodiversity + implementation of the network of sites Air/climate change: meet NEC + Kyoto commitments Water/Nitrates: WFD-achieve good qualitative/quantitative/ecological status Soil: combat erosion/loss of organic matter Interrelations between the above Rural Development Package 2007-13:  Rural Development Package 2007-13 Competitiveness Land management Quality of life 10% 25% 10% 50% Fund minimum 55% 75% Max. EU contribution EU strategic guidelines – adopted February 2006 National Strategy Plans – in preparation National/regional Rural Development Plans Total EU funding €67 billion + national funding Community strategic guidelines:  Community strategic guidelines For improving the environment and countryside:: Biodiversity and preservation and development of high nature value farming + forestry. Water Climate change Biodiversity & NATURA 2000 (1):  Biodiversity & NATURA 2000 (1) The EU network of ~ 18.000 sites = 17.5% of the EU-15 Aim: to maintain and enhance the biological diversity via promoting sustainable development Putting into practice - policy responses: - Göteborg conclusions: halt of loss of biodiversity - Biodiversity action plan for agriculture Message from Malahide with its roadmap A real RD challenge: designing & putting the mgt plans into place Biodiversity & Natura2000 (2):  Biodiversity & Natura2000 (2) Farm Advisory System Meeting Standards LFA Forest-env. payments Agri-environment Afforestation of non agric. land Afforestation of agric. land Agro-forestry Protection,upgrading of natural heritage Training Biodiversity & Natura 2000 Non-productive investments N2000 payments (in agric. & forest land) + cross-compliance Air/Climate change (1):  Air/Climate change (1) Kyoto Protocol and goal of cutting greenhouse gas emissions of the EC to 8% below 1990 levels by 2008-2012 Reducing agriculture’s contribution 10% of EU total; Methane and Nitrous Oxide. Replacing fossil fuels Energy crops support - NEC Directive and the Göteborg Protocol and goal of reducing ammonia emissions from agriculture (93% of NH3 coming from this source) Air/Climate change (2):  Air/Climate change (2) Training Farm Advisory System Meeting standards Agro-forestry Forest-env. payments Afforestation Farm modernisation Air / Climate change LFA Agri-environment Adapting to climate change Water (1):  Water (1) Water Framework Directive with its objective of achieving good status of waters by 2015 via… River basin management plans to apply from 2009 therefore… Need to include measures for these plans already into RD Plans in 2007. AND Nitrates directive 676/91 – completing implementation Water (2):  Water (2) Farm Advisory System Meeting Standards Farm modernisation Natural disaster& prevention actions Agri-environment LFA Afforestation Agro-forestry Forest-env. payments Training Water Develop. of agric.& forest infrastructure Payments linked to Directive 2000/60 + cross-compliance Soil (1):  Soil (1) The current Annex IV of the R1782/2003 with its GAEC requirements regarding soil protection within farming (soil erosion, soil organic matter, soil structure, minimum level of maintenance and avoidance of deterioration of habitats) Forthcoming Thematic Soil Strategy Soil (2):  Soil (2) Farm Advisory System LFA Meeting standards Agri-environment Farm modernisation Agro-forestry Forest-env. payments Training Soil Restoring forestry potential & prevention Afforestation + cross-compliance annex IV Possible actions under certain RD measures (1):  Possible actions under certain RD measures (1) Possible actions under RD measures (2):  Possible actions under RD measures (2) Timetable:  Timetable Final, legal text of the RD Reg. – Sept./Oct. Ongoing discussion on the EU RD Strategic Guidelines should be accomplished this autumn Importance of the national strategies indicating MS’s priorities which should ensure consistency with the Strategic Guidelines (end 2005) Drafting and discussing RD plans (2006) DG ENV assessment of RD strategies and programmes:  DG ENV assessment of RD strategies and programmes Consistency of the national strategies and RD programmes with the EU RD Strategic Guidelines Assessment – main points: Consultation process Environmental description Relevance of the strategy proposed and the measures selected and their link to existing environmental problems Synergies between measures and axes Financial balance between axes and measures BUT subsidiarity principle remains… Slide24:  Conclusions Agriculture has both negative and positive impact on the environment. A strong legislative response exists. CAP has changed to a great extent in favour of the environment through its reforms. Rural development policy is capable of significant environmental delivery – but money is scarce Synergies between axes and measure beneficial for the environment. efforts now can ease problems later
