The text of 26 pages kicks off the multi-stage process by which the 27 EU’s Institutions eventually have to agree on the legislative acts determining the CAP after 2020. The Communication will be followed in the spring by an impact assessment and respective legislative proposals giving effect to the new plans, which would then be tabled in the second half of 2018.
The original purpose of the Communication is to:
- present the main EU agricultural challenges highlighted in the public consultation of February – May 2017;
- highlight the contribution of the agriculture sector to the ten Commission’s priorities) and to the Sustainable Development Goals in synergy with other EU policies;
- specify policy priorities for the future CAP enhancing its EU added value;
- explore operational avenues on the CAP after 2020; and
- build a simpler CAP and improve governance by better reflecting the diversity existing within EU agriculture, increasing subsidiarity for Member States, limiting the EU administrative burden for the beneficiaries and strengthening the focus on results.
@PolicyAGRI is preparing a study on #FutureofCAP for delivery in May/June 2018. This study should help inform Members of the European Parliament of different options and tools that the European Commission (EC) has proposed in its Communication on ‘Modernising and Simplifying the Common Agricultural Policy’ of 29 November 2017. It should provide an overview of the state-of-art of the present CAP, discuss the main drivers and challenges of the next CAP reform post 2020, place the EC Communication of 29 November 2017 in the context of the current strategic debates on the future of the CAP, compare the Commission’s options to the most relevant contributions on the future of the CAP already published, and evaluate the tools proposed by the EC Communication to deal the future challenges of the EU agriculture. The details of the research contract are here: bit.ly/2hHSr00
