Agri-environment-climate measures (AECMs) are designed to encourage farmers to protect and enhance the environment on the land that they manage. They provide payments to farmers in return for a service, in the form of a multi-annual commitment to observe a set of prescribed management practices over a period of 5 years. The agri-environment-climate measures (AECMs) for Malta aim to enhance cultivation methods adapted to the environment and the features of landscapes, and specifically to enhance Maltese biodiversity and ecosystem services; these also promote water conservation and water quality improvement and contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation principally by increasing efficiency of input use and improving soil management.

Applications for participating in AECM 1, 2a, 2b, 3, 4, 5, 6a, 6b, 6c will be received between the 22nd of July and 16th September 2019.

Applicants are required to provide their ID card and site plans of field/s. If representing someone else, one also needs to provide a notarised power of attorney and the ID card of the representative. In case of transfer of land by inheritance, a copy of the will is required.

Applications will be received between 7.30am and 12.00pm at the ARPA Front Office at Pitkali Markets, Ta’ Qali, and in the Gozo Front Office at the Government Experimental Farm, Xewkija.
