7 Risk Management Crisis Reserve (400 million €/year) Temporary collective measures (CMO) Risk management tools (rural development)  Extended support for insurance and mutual funds  New income stabilisation tool

8 Knowledge & innovation Extended Farm Advisory System  Training, business development  Green payments  Water Framework and Pesticides directives New EIP AGRI - European Innovation Partnership for Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability Increased support to Knowledge transfer and Innovation (rural development)

9 Direct Payments Compulsory schemes Basic Payment Green Payment Young Farmers Optional schemes Natural Constraints Areas Coupled Support Redistributive Payment Alternative scheme (optional) Small Farmers Replaces all other payments

10 Direct Payments Compulsory schemes for all Member States Young Farmers farmers under 40 setting up for the first time Green Payment maintenance of permanent grasslands ecological focus areas crop diversification Basic Payment for all active farmers
