Assessing the environmental implications of the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reforms, the European Environment Agency (EEA) launched the Green CAP project. The EEA invited Prospex to design a workshop process for key stakeholders to examine the twin challenges of “greening” the agricultural sector (reducing environmental impact) and ensuring food security.
The workshop process enabled stakeholders from diverse organisations with differing perspectives to work together to map the critical issues, analysing challenges and moving towards recommendations for future agriculture policy. The workshop was highly participatory and employed Prospex techniques for interactive dialogue and exchange. The outcomes of the workshop have been used by the EEA as a central part of the Green CAP project.
