The European Union Delegation to Norway and the Norwegian Agricultural Agency invite to a public seminar on the development of environmental measures in the agricultural policies of the European Union and Norway. The seminar will take place Friday 23 November 2018 in Oslo.

Before summer 2018 the European Commission proposed changes to the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) for 2021-2027. Among the nine CAP objectives at EU level the bar is being raised for environmental and climate action. Norway's environmental measures in agriculture have been reviewed, which among other things have resulted in a new agreement for a National Environmental Programme from 2019.

Time: Friday 23 November at 09:00 – 12:00

Venue: The Norwegian Agricultural Agency (Landbruksdirektoratet), Stortingsgaten 28, 0161 Oslo
