The European Commission launches public consultation on the future of the Common Agricultural Policy
Modernising and simplifying the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), one of the European Union’s longstanding policies, will allow it to better respond to today’s social, political, environmental and economic challenges.
The European Commission today launched the first phase of the modernisation and simplification of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) with the opening of a three-month public consultation. The contributions received will support the Commission’s work to define the agricultural policy priorities for the future. A modernised and simplified Common Agricultural Policy would address the key challenges that agriculture and rural areas are facing while at the same time contributing to the Commission’s policy priorities (notably jobs and growth), to sustainable development, a budget focused on results, simplification and subsidiarity.
