Research for AGRI Committee - The CAP Strategic Plans beyond 2020 - Assessing the architecture in order to achieve the EU-wide objectives

15-10-2018

The study is assessing the design of the new CAP Strategic Plans as foreseen in the proposal COM (2018) 392. The proposed strategic planning is a step forward in evidence-based policy-making, enabling greater flexibility for Member states and the efficiency of the policy. The remaining challenges are associated with the complexity of the process and limited capability, or willingness, of the policy system to implement it. Suggested improvements relate to analytical support, inclusive preparation process, smooth implementation and rewarded ambition.
