Description and rationale of the selected planning process
a) The protection of natural essential processes that make life on earth possible and therefore all agricultural activities: biodiversity, soils and waters.
b) The development of an agricultural sector that incorporates product and process innocuousness as central in their activities. This is seen as responding to the demands of consumers and therefore as a factor of competitiveness in international markets.
c) The promotion of environmental markets and green businesses within a perspective that understands environmental management more as an opportunity for the development of new products and markets than as local restriction.
Actions: In consideration of the three objectives, the EAMA specifies six lines of future action:
1) Modernisation and strengthening of the conservation and protection of nature.
2) Efficiency, efficacy, equity and responsibility in environmental management.
3) Sustainability and innocuousness of production.
4) Development of environmental markets and green businesses.
5) Capacity building.
6) Participation and trust.
