NIVA - Simplifying CAP governance through improved digital tools and data flows

This repository community collects research outputs related to EU H2020 Project - NIVA4CAP. 

New IACS Vision In Action (NIVA) aims to develop and implement technologies that will deliver a more seamless Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), in particular through improvements to the key administrative control platform (the instrument for CAP governance) – Integrated Administrative Control System. A key goal is to facilitate data and information flows to support objectives around sustainability, competitiveness, efficiency and transparency, thereby improving agricultural performance monitoring and reducing administrative burdens for farmers, paying agencies and other stakeholders.  Many challenges exist in achieving this goal including different levels of adoption of technology, 44 diverse implementations of IACS and the nature of the relationship and communication channels between paying agencies and farmers among others.

NIVA delivers tools, services, methodologies and standards (such as EO classification algorithms, auxiliary data as monitoring proofing tools, automated LPIS update, indexes etc.) that can be implemented in the participating Member States (MS), and also taken-up by systems of other stakeholders (including IACS’s of another MS).

A series of use case demonstrations have been developed and piloted in different EU countries and led by local paying agencies and stakeholders.

NIVA is a 36-month project which began in 2019 (extended to end 2022) and it is funded under the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The project is led by Wageningen University & Research and the consortium includes 27 project partners including 9 Member State paying agencies.
