Call for proposal 2015 for "Pilot on-farm projects to test result-based remuneration schemes for the enhancement of biodiversity" DG ENV/RBAPS 2015 Closed!


The specific objectives of this call for proposals are:

  • To promote the design, development and use in rural areas of result-based remuneration schemes to conserve and enhance biodiversity;
  • To increase the understanding of factors that contribute to the success or failure of such schemes;
  • To identify opportunities and conditions for increasing the use of such schemes in the EU and in particular in the context of the CAP;
    • To explore the potential for such schemes to be applied widely in the rural countryside and beyond grasslands, e.g. for the protection and enhancement of pollinators and soil biodiversity;
    • To demonstrate the potential of these schemes to achieve the ecological results they are designed for by developing, testing and applying widely appropriate monitoring to verify the ecological results achieved;
    • To promote and increase awareness and better understanding of the benefits of results based remuneration schemes particularly within the rural community.


The objectives are to be achieved largely through the design, set-up, management and monitoring of pilot, results-based remuneration schemes applied on working farms.
