MEASUREMENT IN RELATION TO FARMERS’ INCOMES – 07 APRIL

Brussels Daily

The European Commission’s system for assessing how EU measures under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) support farmers’ incomes is not well-enough designed and has significant limitations, according to a new report from the European Court of Auditors.

Under new CAP rules, the Commission has to assess the impact of farm subsidies in relation to their objectives. The auditors examined the design of the Commission’s performance measurement system for farmers’ incomes and whether the necessary statistical data was properly defined and of an appropriate quality. They found that the system was not sufficiently well-designed and that the data had significant limitations.
