EU rural development policies and biodiversity

Governments are misusing EU rural development funds by channelling money to farm lobbies rather than using it for projects to improve biodiversity, argues a global alliance of national conservation NGOs in a new study. We have shown that there is a lot of abuse going on, and member states are clearly favouring certain farm lobbies rather than environmental benefits", aid Ariel Brunner, BirdLife International's senior EU agriculture policy officer, lamenting that national governments are failing to grasp the environmental opportunities provided by the EU's Rural Development Policy . A BirdLife study published on 7 May, reviews the potential effects on biodiversity of the EU's rural development programmes 2007-2013, and presents a range of best and worst-practice case studies.
