CERTAIN ENVIRONMENT, ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL ASPECTS OF THE HIGH NATURAL VALUE (HNV) FARMING: ROMANIAN`S STATE OF THE ART
HNV farming is a new concept that describes those farming systems in Europe that have the widest biodiversity. It brings an alternative and complementary approach to the typology that has become conventional by nature conservation. The paper presents the role of the HNV farming system for the conservation of rare and threatened species and habitats in protected areas as well as preservation of biodiversity inEurope, which largely depends on the continuation of traditional agricultural practices in much wider areas of European rural space. Thus, one of the major problems in the implementation of agricultural policies in many European countries has been made aware: support for ,,nature" focuses on ,,designated areas" while support for ,,agriculture" flows abundantly towards large, intensive producers. This situation needs to be reconsidered because in the distribution of European funds there has been a recommendation on the major change towards environmentally beneficial land use.
