Abstract: The purpose of this article is to analyze the use of EU funds by national beneficiaries
as part of their participation in the "Agri-environmental-climate" action implemented
in seven climate packages, ie Sustainable Agriculture, Soil and Water
Conservation, Orchard Conservation of Traditional Fruit Trees, Valuable Habitats
and Endangered Species Birds in NATURA 2000 areas, precious habitats outside the
NATURA 2000 areas, preservation of endangered genetic resources of plants in agriculture
and preservation of endangered genetic resources of animals in agriculture.
The research material is data originating from The Agency for Restructuring and
Modernisation of Agriculture (ARMA) concerning applications submitted by farms.
Calls for proposals were held from March 15, 2014 till June 10, 2016. The object of
the research was an analysis of the activity of Polish applicants. The article uses the
descriptive and tabular method of statistical data analysis. In addition, the purpose
of the analysis was to analyze the literature of the subject. Agri-environmental and
climatic action as an instrument for the protection of landscape diversity is an important
support instrument for Polish farmers. Since the beginning of Poland's accession
to the EU in 2004, Polish farmers are aware that agricultural activity should be conducted in accordance with sustainable development, and CAP agri-environment and climate programmes are an instrument whose aim is to preserve environmental and climate biodiversity. Such programmes should be supported as they bring benefits to farmers themselves in the form of subsidies (money) and the environment in the form of protection of natural ecosystems and sustainable development.
