About the MAP
In Germany, the Thünen Institute coordinates the first German Multi-Actor Platform, operating in the region of Schleswig-Holstein.
The main challenges in the region are: eutrophication of water bodies and climate change, intensive agriculture and structural change in agriculture, and the role and image of farming in rural communities. Inefficient policy measures is another issue that require attention.
The activities of this MAP are designed to achieve the following specific objectives:
- MAP objective 1: Engage agricultural, environmental and rural policy actors, representatives of farming and environmental interest, rural society / community and scientists working on topics relevant to the identified challenges and themes within the MAP.
- MAP objective 2: Co-construct recommendations for the implementation of the Rural Development Programme in Schleswig-Holstein in the upcoming programming period, for further reforms of the CAP at the national and EU levels, and on priorities for future research agendas in the context of the themes agreed with the MAP members.
- MAP objective 3: Jointly write a position paper that synthesises the results of the discussions into concrete recommendations targeted at the key actors in the science-society-policy dialogue at regional, national and EU levels.
