Common Agricultural Policy: How to encourage young people to get into agricultural profession?

On 1 June 2018, the European Commission presented legislative proposals for the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) after 2020.  These proposals aim to enable the CAP to respond more effectively to current and future challenges such as climate and generational change while continuing to support European farmers to ensure the agricultural sector is both sustainable and competitive.

One of the challenges is to accompany the renewal of generations of farmers through different mechanisms, including dedicating part of the income support to continue to facilitate access to and transfer of land.

EURACTIV France organised a round table to discuss the CAP after 2020 and the support for the renewal of generations of farmers.

  • Aid to young farmers: what are the main differences between the 2014-2020 and 2021-2027 programmes?
  • What adjustments are needed to ensure that CAP subsidies are consistent with the real needs of young farmers?
  • How can we encourage young farmers to set up their own farms?
  • What are the possibilities in terms of financing?
