100 RISK REDUCTION MEASURES
Local subsidies and voluntary agreements for action exceeding mandatory management standards
There is a large set of EU-requirements and standards that land managers have to meet in order to receive support scheme payments (“cross compliance”). However, local risk assessment may require exceeding mandatory standards. Here, voluntary agreements between farmer, land owner and municipality and local subsidies may help. Subsidies and agreements should accommodate the likely changes in precipitation and flooding patterns derived from climate change.
