High Nature Value Farming Projects

In many EU Member States (MS), both the concept of High Nature Value farming and how to translate it into policy are far from well-understood. EFNCP therefore supports projects in different MS aiming at the identification and monitoring of HNV farmland and farming systems. Furthermore, these projects assess the key challenges facing the conservation of these areas. This usually involves discussions with local actors and farmers.

So far, EFNCP project activities have focused on the UK, Ireland, Spain, France, Romania and Bulgaria, as shown on the map:
