This study on “A comparative analysis of global agricultural policies: lessons for the future CAP” was presented in the AGRI Committee on 7 February by Simone Sterly (IFLS – Institut für ländliche Strukturforschung, Germany) and Roel Jongeneel (Wageningen University and Research, the Netherlands).

Based on case studies of leading trade partners (Australia, Canada, Japan, Switzerland, United States), the study concludes that while the EU has in several respects obtained an advanced position in agricultural policy by pursuing a comprehensive set of policy goals, the CAP could still learn from other countries, particularly to improve farm income resilience through risk management tools (like the ones used in Canada and the US) and to achieve climate and other environmental objectives (for instance with long term contracts to capture carbon (Canada, Australia) or manage areas with natural handicaps (Japan)).
