Letter to the leadership of the Ministry of Interior. sent the Regional Branch of Western Macedonia of the Geotechnical Chamber of Greece (ΓΕΩΤ.Ε.Ε / Π.Δ.Μ), with proposals in view of the 3rd Invitation of the Measure 6.1 of Young Farmers (Ν.Γ.) of the P.A.A.. 2014-2020. The letter states in detail the following:
The conclusions - proposals of the meeting are summarized as follows:
1. This pre-publication essentially cancels the pre-publication on November 3rd 2020, when the Ministry of Rural Development and Food had announced, that in the context of dealing with the consequences of de-lignification in Western Macedonia, would be proclaimed within it 2021, the Submeter 6.1 "Installation of Young Farmers", exclusively for candidates with permanent residence in the affected Regional Units of the Region.
Consequently, in order to avoid inconsistencies in the implementation of the political planning for the recovery of the economy of the Region, It is necessary in the new call to take special care for the support of young farmers with permanent residence in the Region of Western Macedonia, which is affected in its entirety by the consequences of de-lignification.
2. Further, on the technical data of the Consultation Invitation we point out the following:
i. The amounts to be allocated per Region, the standard return rates that will apply, as well as the scoring criteria, should be notified immediately in order to better prepare stakeholders.
ii. The inclusion threshold with a standard return greater than 14.000 € is considered very high, especially for those who own livestock (need about 155 sheep).
iii. It is necessary to measure the standard yield of the intersown crops in the standard yield of the farm. On the one hand, it is a common cultivation technique, and in addition the plots are already cultivated, resulting in this exclusion leading to crop destruction, and / or encouraging the submission of untrue statements.
iv. The limitation on the spouse's standard performance over the years 2019 and 2020, harmonize with the threshold of standard input performance in the program.
In addition to the above, we consider that it is out of the question to mention the necessity of providing the mandatory signature of a Geotechnical Consultant in the submitted proposals of the Measure. In this way both correctness is ensured, the validity and realism of the business plan of the potential beneficiary, as well as the payment to the Greek State of the foreseen tax contributions.
With the expectation that our proposals will contribute to the smooth implementation of the Measure, in mitigating the consequences of de-lignification and ultimately in achieving the development of the rural area, we remain at your disposal for any clarification or cooperation on the subject.
