IEEP, Wageningen University & Research and Navigant held a workshop on 18 November to explore where crops for non-food purposes could be grown in Europe in the future. Current policy seeks to steer these crops to abandoned or degraded land, but the workshop looked at how much is available, where it is and how suitable this land might be in practice.

Kaley joined IEEP in October 2007. She specializes in European policies which impact on the rural environment and has a good understanding of the implementation and impacts of these policies across the 28 Member States of the European Union. She is an experienced project manager of large multi-partner projects, leading research studies and policy evaluations which focus on the integration of environmental considerations into European and national agricultural and rural development policies. She is actively involved in debates surrounding the future of the CAP and works to develop a longer-term rationale for agricultural policy, including developing policy measures that are oriented towards the delivery of public goods. She also has experience of communications and outreach work.
Prior to joining the Institute she worked at Natural England and the Countryside Agency as a Senior Specialist on land management policy, focusing on rural development and agri-environment policy in the UK and Europe and before that at CPRE as their Rural Policy Officer and as a Research Assistant at Kings College and Wye College, University of London.
The environmental and climate ambition of the future CAP is increasingly under threat as the European Parliament and AGRIFISH Council finalise their positions on the legal texts.
This paper examines the role that the post-2020 Common Agricultural Policy can play in the transformation towards more sustainable and resilient agri-food systems in the EU
The European Commission's Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development. commissioned IEEP (through the Alliance Environment consortium) to undertake a formal evaluation of the CAP’s impact on habitats, landscapes and biodiversity.
IEEP has responded to a call for evidence from the Public Bill Committee, which is considering amendments to the Agriculture Bill put before the UK Parliament by the Government.
