The meeting, which took place at COPA-COGECA in Brussels, was attended by representatives from different agricultural unions of the EU. Thomas Dworak focused his lecture on the main links between the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and the Common Agricultural Policy.
In his lecture, he addressed issues such as program of measures, public participation, bioenergy and water pricing. The presentation was followed by a broad debate on what farmers can expect from a fully implemented WFD.
