The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform, proposed by the European Commission in June 2018, introduces a more flexible, performance and results-based approach that takes into account local conditions and needs, while increasing EU level ambitions in terms of sustainability.
The Member States’ national administrations will from now on play a stronger role in devising and implementing their own CAP Strategic Plans according to their priorities and specific needs. But this also means an increased responsibility for monitoring and improving their delivery and performance, which need to be linked to the objectives agreed at EU level and specified in the Strategic Plan Regulation.
This process also changes the way interventions in Pillar 1 and 2 are regulated and administered by different entities. From 2021, they will be incorporated into one Strategic Plan for each Member State with a view to enhancing complementarity and performance.
Join this EURACTIV Virtual Conference to discuss the CAP reform and the shift from compliance towards results and performance. Can these latest reforms achieve the balance of economic health of the farming sector, care for the natural environment, action over the climate emergency, and foster a strong economic and social fabric in rural areas?
