Which future for pastoralism in Europe? Feedback from the workshop in Moûtiers

On 7 March 2018, Euromontana organized a workshop entitled “Which future for pastoralism in Europe? The cohabitation with large carnivores and the attractivity of the pastoral jobs in question”, in Moûtiers, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in France.
This workshop, organised for Euromontana’s members, allowed for exchanges and fruitful dialogue among members from 11 European countries and representing different types of organizations, namely research centres, farming organisations, environmental and regional development agencies and regions.

Pastoralism is a traditional activity of extensive animal breeding, carried out in particular in mountain regions. This form of breeding allows the development of territories with low agronomic value, often difficult to access or not mechanisable, and thus helps to maintain an economic activity in these areas.

However, the continuation of pastoral activity is threatened by various difficulties. During the workshop on 7 March 2018 in Moûtiers, two challenges of pastoralism were discussed, namely the cohabitation with large carnivores and how to maintain the attractiveness in pastoral jobs. This discussion workshop, aimed to better understand the situation faced by the members, the issues in the different territories and to have some food for thought for future activities.

#SIMRA4GA #H2020 #socialinnovation #socinn #rural

The Rural coalition expressed its opposition to the recent Council proposal for the post-2020 #CAP budget. Rural areas & #ruralvoices deserve an adequate budget to tackle to the challenges faced by our territories. See more in our common open letter⬇️

"The rural development Pillar of the CAP is indispensable to the coherence of the CAP. It is thanks to this Pillar that #youngfarmers can receive assistance to set up their farms, crucial support for them and their future in the sector," says @JDecerle at #ruralvoices 🇪🇺 🌱

A very strong message by MEP @paolodecastro during the #RuralVoices event in favore of a strong #CAP budget needed for delivering on ambitious plans #GreenDeal and #Farm2Fork!
