CAP Consultation Process - Consultation on Modernising & Simplifying the Common Agricultural Policy

News | 10 Feb 2017

The EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) was developed in the early sixties to translate in policy terms the objectives defined in the Treaty of Rome (1957), and subsequently taken over in the Treaty on the European Union. Like all other EU policies or programmes, the CAP is also subject to other provisions of the Treaty to ensure coherence with the overall objectives of the Union. While the future of the CAP is already debated in various instances, this process will include a broad consultation and an impact assessment. The goal is to summarise available evidence on the performance of the CAP so far, draw lessons from the implementation of the latest reform, have a structured dialogue, confirm what the current difficulties are, and anticipate needs for modernisation and simplification of the CAP. Therefore, the European Commission have launched their public consultation on the next CAP (Common Agriculture Policy) reform. It will remain open until May 2nd, 2017.
