In collaboration with François Chiron
In 2013 the common agricultural policy (CAP). is reformed to strengthen the competitiveness of the sector, promote sustainable farming and innovation and support jobs and growth in rural areas.
At the European scale, we investigate the effect of this new CAP reform on farmland bird with the scenarios provide by CAPRI.
Preliminary results show that scenarios can have very nuanced effects on bird populations across countries. Futhermore, the initial state of landscapes seem to be an important parameter to consider in the objective to reconcile agricultural production and maintenance of biodiversity through European aids.
