In this context, it becomes highly important to understand synergies of water policy with other policy areas. In the CAP (reform 2014-2020), there are for example various instruments to improve sustainability also in term of EU water policy objectives: cross-compliance (linking certain CAP payments with specific environmental requirements), the Green Direct Payment which rewards farmers for respecting three obligatory agricultural practices with potential indirect impacts on water quality (maintenance of permanent grassland, ecological focus areas and crop diversification) and rural development which provides financial incentives for actions going beyond compulsory legislation (EC, 2013).
