EC opens public consultation on CAP
13 Feb 2017
The European Commission has opened a public consultation on modernising and simplifying the common agricultural policy (CAP).
As part of its working programme for 2017, the Commission will take forward work and consult widely on simplification and modernisation of the CAP to maximise its contribution to the Commission's ten priorities and to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will focus on specific policy priorities for the future, taking into account the opinion of the REFIT Platform and without prejudice to the next Multiannual Financial Framework. The starting point will be a well-founded assessment of the performance of the current policy.
The consultation closes on 2 May 2017.
