  • High nature value farmland - Characteristics, trends and policy challenges - 2004
    Prepared by: Ybele Hoogeveen, project manager (EEA); Jan-Erik Petersen (EEA); Katalin Balazs (EEA); Ivonne Higuero (UNEP).
    EEA, 2004. ISBN: 92-9167-664-0.
    Farmland supports many habitats and species of European conservation concern. In 2003, Europe's environment ministers agreed to identify all farmland areas with high nature value and take conservation measures. This report shows that these areas cover roughly 15-25 % of the European countryside and suffer from land abandonment and intensification. Current policy measures appear insufficient to prevent further biodiversity decline.
