On 30 March 2017 ADEPT was one of the main presenters of the results of the innovative payments project, with the aim of influencing EU-level policy in the next period (post 2020).
Over 120 people attended including European Commission policy makers, national government specialists from 18 EU countries, conservation NGOs based in Brussels and many EU countries, and of course farmers.
A Romanian Ministry of Agriculture representative made a presentation, as well as ADEPT staff and a Romanian farmer.
The conference was live-streamed and followed by hundreds of farmers and policy-makers across the EU.
As a result of the presentations of success stories, both the Romanian government and the European Commission are giving high priority to wider application of this innovative payment system, which will help support small-scale farming communities in Romania and in other EU countries.
