The European Green Deal
CAP reform and the Green Deal delivery
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
A deal on the next reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is highly likely this year. A key feature of the 2018 EU Commission proposal relates to the governance of the CAP. Through CAP strategic plans, member states would have greater flexibility to design their own interventions and rules, such as setting climate and environmental goals. This new EU-wide framework will be based on a toolbox of broad policy measures and on a set of common result indicators establishing a new monitoring and evaluation framework developed by the European Commission. Will the resulting national agricultural policy interventions be able to meet the Green Deal objectives and targets? Will the new objectives ensure that the EU adjusts its climate ambition upwards, while guaranteeing a level playing field across member states?
