The Next CAP: Armageddon for hares, pheasants & Co.?

European Parliament, Room JAN 6Q2 – 04 September 2018

European hunters are aware that the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is a crucial support mechanism for agriculture and rural areas in Europe. However, the current CAP has a significant negative impact on the environment, biodiversity and the poor status of many huntable and non-huntable species in agricultural landscapes.

Most small game populations have dramatically decreased due to intense agricultural practices (dramatic loss of quality habitat and food, with poor insect abundance) and the utilisation of unsustainable agricultural production methods.

This conference will discuss how the next CAP can recover small game populations in Europe and showcase simple solutions to promote biodiversity.
