The state aid programmes (mainly under the EU’s agri-environment programmes like MEKA in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg and FUL in Rhineland-Palatinate; depending on the federal state between around and Euro per hectare and year) can cover these extra costs only to a small degree. We obtained evidence on the actual effectiveness of UK practice in preventing damage to sites of high biodiversity importance from published reports (Avery et al., ; Review Steering Group Secretariat Scottish Executive, ) and by contacting the following non-governmental nature conservation organisations: Butterfly Conservation, Friends.

For the heterogeneity of interventions and of the monitoring methods, an overall evaluation of the efficacy of agri-environment schemes at European scale is difficult and remains unresolved.

These so-called agri-environment schemes aim at low-input farming and an associated increase of biodiversity (Bignal, ). In England, important changes to the landscape, improvements in habitats and benefits for several target species have been recorded (Ovenden et al., ).Cited by:   The 71 reviewed publications are peer-reviewed journal articles (83%) and book sections (17%) published between and (Fig.

2B).More than 80% of the publications have appeared since (Fig. 2B).The publications cover study sites in a total of 12 European countries (Fig. 2A and C).Most of the study sites are located in Spain (45%), the UK Cited by: Agri-environment schemes and forest grants can be used to encourage the maintenance and creation of features that improve the permeability of the landscape to forest-species movement.

The table below shows the impressive percentage of agricultural land in higher level or targeted agri-environment schemes and entry level schemes in. This project demonstrates what can be achieved through prioritising the use of targeted, 'on-farm, adviser-led' agri-environment schemes in the wider 'non designated' farmed countryside where the main focus is building long term relationships with farmers in order to create, from arable land, a contiguous network of species-rich grasslands.

Current agri-environment schemes are central to meeting the Government’s target of reversing the decline in the ‘farmland bird index’ (based on population trends in 18 species) by The Entry Level Scheme (ELS), implemented in England inis a key delivery mechanism and it is therefore extremely important to.The European Union (EU) ensures the conservation of biodiversity through the Natura Network, which establishes the classification and selection of protected areas at European level.

Unfortunately, member countries cannot make the best zoning decisions for biodiversity conservation because there are no clear and uniform parameters to designate Natura sites.A number of measures have been implemented under agri-environment Regulation /92, for example the MEKA programme (Marktentlastungs- und Kulturlandschaftsausgleich) in the Federal State of Baden-Württemberg.

MEKA and the suckler cow premium scheme (SCP) may have ecologically positive effects on nature and environment.
