" The new RDP's opportunities for organic and multifunctional farming": a seminar in Rome (IT)


IFOAM EU in association with the Italian Association of Organic Agriculture (AIAB) is organising a public seminar and workshop on Organic Opportunities for Sustainable Rural Development to 2020 on 6 October. Today, the crisis situation in the European dairy sector clearly highlights the failures of our current EU policies for supporting viable farm enterprises and balanced rural development. As a result the programme will include a panel discussion looking at whether EU agri-food policies are capable of supporting sustainable farming and food economies. This will be followed by a workshop exploring the state of play on rural development programme (RDPs) implementation in different Member States and regions. Overall the event will consider the latest reform of the CAP for the period 2014-2020. This sees the introduction of new policy instruments, including new RDPs, which come into effect in 2015/2016.  Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in an excursion to Italian farms and enterprises in the Lazio region on 05 October. The event is part of the project Boosting organic: making the CAP effective an action co-financed by the European Commission, Directorate General for Agriculture and Rural Development. It is organised in collaboration with Legambiente and FIRAB as part of AIAB’s annual BioDomenica programme.
