The overall theme of the seminar was the development of and future application of Good Farming Practice (GFP) requirements at national and regional level in Central and Eastern European Countries (CEECs). The topics covered included monitoring compliance, evaluating impacts, setting out incentives for management beyond the baseline codes of GFP, calculating penalties for noncompliance and targeting measures to benefit high nature value areas. The meeting was organised by the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP) in co-operation with UNEP. It was made possible by a generous contribution from the Swiss Agency for Environment, Forests and Landscape, Government of Switzerland.
