EU Commissioner visits Wild Atlantic Nature project site

EU Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries, Virginijus Sinkevičius paid a visit to Sliabh Liag SAC to learn about the work of LIFE IP Wild Atlantic Nature. The Commissioner discussed the LIFE project and our development of the Results-Based agri-environment Payments Scheme (RBPS) of Wild Atlantic Nature. The Commissioner was provided with a demonstration of how the scorecard works, using the surrounding blanket bog as an example, and discussed how the RBPS is informing Ireland’s new CAP Strategic Plan.
