A study conducted by the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) and BirdLife Europe found a €1 billion decline in the actual funding for 'green' measures meant to benefit the environment on farmland.
The EEB noted that over 80% of protected extensive grasslands in Natura 2000 sites were in an 'unfavorable condition'.
The report stated that the original idea behind the reform of the post-2013 CAP was to ensure public money was being used to pay for public goods.
