PEGASUS Workshop | 30 November 2017

farming and mountainsJoin the PEGASUS team in Vienna for a workshop exploring the potential for provision of public goods by farming and forestry in remote and marginal areas, including mountains

This one day event aims to share and discuss the emerging findings and outputs from the EU-wide PEGASUS project. The workshop will discuss the potential, particularly for collective forms of action by farmers and other rural stakeholders, to increase public goods delivery in remote and marginal areas, including mountains. It will explore what this means for future policy and practice on the ground. The intention is for these discussions to feed into the debate on how national and EU policies, including the Common Agricultural Policy, might evolve post 2020.

The workshop will take place at the Federal Institute for Less-Favoured and Mountainous Areas in Vienna, Austria, on Thursday 30 November from 9:30am to 4:30pm.

The objectives of the workshop are to:

  • Share the findings of the project from the 34 case studies carried out in 10 Member States and present new EU maps showing the linkages between agriculture and forest management systems and the delivery of public goods and ecosystem services;
  • Present the lessons and recommendations for policy and practice;
  • Receive feedback from national policy makers and stakeholders from different countries. 

The event is organised by BABF on behalf of the PEGASUS team.
