Heritage as an aspect of the Common Agricultural Policy

This brochure shows the possibilities of the Common Agricultural policy provides for the qualities of our landscape to maintain and strengthen.

Agriculture and cultural-historical landscape

The future of the landscape is largely determined by agriculture. The way in which agriculture is conducted is largely prescribed by Europe and is laid down in the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The CAP has a direct influence on what our landscape will look like in the coming years. This brochure shows the possibilities that the CAP offers for the cultural landscape. This explicitly does not concern farms, barnyards and archaeological values in relation to the monument law. The relationship between the cultural-historical landscape and the CAP and therefore the use and management of the landscape are central.
